I was just detained and questioned by the TSA thanks to some callous, bitter ticketing attendant. On some days, I love traveling so frequently... on others...
This is exactly what happened:
"How are you, sir?"
"I'm okay, how are you? Hey, the Self Check-In machine didn't ask me to pay for my bag."
"Oh, I'm sorry about that, we'll take care of it right now. Also, we have an earlier flight heading out at 11 instead of 1, would you like to go on stand-by for that for an additional fifty dollars?"
She raised her voice and looked at me very sternly, saying, "Sir, I don't care for your attitude."
I looked at this lady, kind of in a mild state of shock, laughed a little bit, waited for her to go back to what she was doing, turned to the guy next to me and very lightly said, "Friendly skies my ass. Jesus Christ." He laughed. She didn't.
Two minutes later, waiting at the same ticketing counter, two gentlemen in the typical TSA garb are rapping me on the shoulder and asking me to come with them.
Long story short, I calmly assured them (as well as a Colorado Springs Police Officer who usually patrols this airport) that I hadn't made a threat on the woman's life, that I just wanted to get my boarding pass and go through security like everybody else, and that no harm was intended by what I said. They let me go with a warning to watch what I say from here on out.
Another day in paradise.

They should, but it would have to go through Congress, seeing as the TSA is answerable basically only to the president. They would literally have to vote them out of the airports.
Did anybody hear about the change's most of the major airlines want to impose? They want to get rid of the TSA and bring on private contractors BOOOOO FUCKING YAAAHHHHHHHHHHHH BITCHSSSSSS
