what was the deal with the gropee? was it the infamous ssss on the boarding pass, or was it just at random, his lucky day....?
TSA (Team Sexual Assault) in action...that's what it's all about! Stuff like this makes me want to !
Minus the grope, this is the same thing that happened to me at MCI.. Everybody they singled out was carrying a backpack
So if you refuse your gate frisk do they escort you from the airport? Do they note your name? As a 1K flyer with United, it would be pretty easy to get put on another flight. I'm just wondering how much of a hassle it would be to refuse.
Most likely throw you out and take your name.They undoubtedly calculate that once you're that close to departure you'll do whatever they want to make your flight. Based on reports, asking for a private screening is out of the question as well.
I've been through that gate dozens of times and really wouldn't mind get stuck an extra day in Vegas, even it it was the airport. If you're familiar with McCarran, you'll recall that there are a series of slots maybe fifty feet behind where the victim is standing.
Seriously, if it comes down to it, refuse, outright refuse to give your name and walk away.
Go somewhere else and get yourself rebooked if you can. I learned the hard way that playing nice only works against you.
But if you're sure you can get put on another flight and want to game the system, insist on a private screening and insist on new gloves out of the box, which they often don't have handy at the gate.
Cute and chubby. Was the blue-shirt savoring the experience and his gloves? He wasn't testing for explosives...
I was there in February of this year coming home from my brother's wedding. There are slot machines EVERYWHERE in that airport! I was thinking to myself, "Geeze, is this an airport, or is it a casino?"
I went through there on the way to TUL, via mci. I meant to try one of the slots there but never got around to it. Maybe going to OK during tornado season was enough of a gamble....
What's Junior doing with the keys and what looks like an iPhone? The Bearded One drew a bead on the photographer. I agree that this was a prime opportunity for someone to require the clerks to change gloves out of the box.
