    If they touch my junk, I like to yell out, “Let’s get a room!” twice fairly quickly, and loud enough to make heads turn.
    You should try it sometime.Report

    I went through the pat-down once. I lost my drivers license in the terminal and found out in the security line with a few minutes to go before boarding, with my wife and baby daughter in tow. I had to talk the guy into letting me through, which he only did with ‘enhanced screening’.
    I felt responsible enough that I would never complain about it; but if they’d told me they needed to do it to baby girl, I am not sure I would have been able to manage myself.Report

    Hey Burt – how do you mark it as an ‘off-the-cuff’ post? I tried selecting that tag and it didn’t work.Report
