    Reason: TSA's Clever New Security Protocol: Nosy Questions About Your Vacation

    ... People clumsy enough to interpret "behavior detection" as "tackle the brown folks" are guaranteed, once redirected, to think that behaving like a sweaty stalker in a corner bar is a cleverly subtle approach to ferreting out evil-doers.

    Yeah. Traveling is just becoming more fun every day.

    These BDOs are officially the creepiest thugs in America.

    You can drop the creepiest part, they're just TSA thugs.

    I was taught from a young age to "never talk to strangers."

    I am not friends with any TSA agent. The only person I will briefly speak to that wears that shade of blue is the Walmart greeter. And even then, I do not reveal any personal information. And THEY have never barked "Do You Want To Shop Today?!"

    In the case of TSA I would suggest that anything said could be used as a means to facilitate a theft of your property. Why on earth would anyone tell complete strangers where they live, what they do, or any other personal information, especially since we all know that TSA is heavily infested with all manner of low life criminals.

    You also have to treat every encounter with a clerk, no matter how innocuous, as an interrogation and as a means to have you detained. That is the culture they've created and this uncivilized response from us is 100% their fault. This isn't black helicopter stuff; it's real.

    When this has happened to me on a couple of occasions, I've said what I've always said when someone in a uniform at an airport is nosy: "I don't discuss my travel."

    You know, it's quite hypocritical of them to be upset by the negative attitude and responses they are receiving, yet everything they do is the root cause of said hostility. Eff em!

    It would be like me going up to a random person and punching them, then getting upset that they punched me back, or worse.

    In the case of TSA it's more like TSA employees taking a dump on the Constitution. TSA has earned every bit of hostility we can show.
