More info from my friend: I'm still reeling from the tsa experience. first they couldn't hunt someone down to do the pat down. Tom just went through the metal detector and i don't know how we ended up with the scanners. bob went through but i didn't want to...and you know the first woman i was with told me that if she flew, she wouldn't go through them either.i told her I would be worried about herself and the job standing right near them continuously and that she should wear a gismo to read the output she sucks up. her eyes lit up and she agreed. that was only the start. she said they have to use new gloves every time to get a fresh reading from the clothing. When i failed they put me in the little room and i figured everything would be ok but i failed there too!!!!! in BIG LETTERS!!!! by then there's a group of tsa and i hear them saying they got one. maybe referring to lotion or bomb material...didn't specify. Later they tried to calm me down by saying it could be anything. WHAT??? I told them this was pretty stupid because they were wasting a lot of both of our time. yatta, yatta.
