My husband and I were filing through the security checkpoint at the Huskies Stadium (University of Washington) a couple years ago for our granddaughter's graduation ceremony. You know how lonnnnnnnnnnng those events are!
So I brought a simple knitting project. The IDIOT kid at the checkpoint didn't want to allow me through the checkpoint with my knitting. I said, "Are you kidding??? REALLY??? Get someone over here who knows what they're doing. The TSA at the airport has been allowing knitting needles for years!"
I dug in and stood my ground. After a lot of discussion with his fellow idiots, finally someone with a brain said, "Guys, anything the TSA allows IS ALLOWED through this checkpoint!"
:wall: 15 minutes of idiocy....Gramma got in with her knitting.
So anyone at any airport could run into a stubborn agent, just sayin....but I wouldn't argue with an agent at an airport, EVER! That's an argument you will always lose. None of us wants to go the route of Alec Baldwin! LOL!
There's a new saying....just like we all know what GOING POSTAL implies....the new saying is GOING BALDWIN at the airport (or on the plane)!
