Flying out of SLC tonight. Got to the TSA and waited behind the mm wave machine and told them I’m opting out. They tried to coax me through the machine, shook my head no still. A lady in the lane next to where I was told me to go through HER machine and I told her I was opting out and wanted the pat down instead. She goes “Well, I just made your evening much easier. I’m watching the metal detector line!”
Walked through the metal detector and to show how much THEATRE it is, my solid steel 3″ belt buckle didn’t set off the metal detector. I could have kept my pocket knife in my pocket instead of my truck and I would have been JUST fine. I hate the TSA, but that lady watching the metal detector line was good to go.
