    I've said before I'd consider being a mole to help our cause, but I don't know if I have the demeanor to put up with it.

    Don't worry about that. Worry about the lobotomy they perform on Day 2.

    Up for grabs? Cue the Beavis and Butt-Head snickering. :eek::D

    Oh come on, you'll get to wear a policeman's costume with a badge and everything! :p

    Oh sure, but the first time I'd have to do the usual schtick I'd probably revert to "This is stupid and a violation of everyone's rights." then proceed to curse my supervisor and leave.

    Be glad it's not an airport with porno scopes. I'd get in trouble because I would send everybody through the WTMD.

    Might come in handy for Halloween, or some other "events" ;) :p

    Do you realize how truly awesome that could be on Youtube?

    We'd want him to smuggle out the SOP first, though, and then it's "Wikileaks, here we come!"

    Mikemey, according to "JustSayin" at PV:

    Do you have a year to wait for your background check and rigorous training program?:rolleyes:

    And they do mean "rigorous." They give you 200 pizza boxes with TSA employment ads on them and by the time you leave that interview, THEY BETTER NOT SEE ONE TINY SPECK OF CHEESE LEFT ON THOSE LIDS.

    You'd think that a year-long vetting process would weed out the pedophiles, thieves, child porn producers, etc.

    After all, if they can't SPOT those in a year, how're they supposed to catch a terrorist in a ten-second interaction?

    Up for grabs? I wonder if this choice of words was intentional or Freudian.

    Thinking I would make a cardboard sign and sit on the side of the road begging for money before lowering myself by working for TSA.

    Having flown into countries where a neatly folded $10 in the passport is considered good practice, I have to say that security, customs, and customer service was respectful and minimally intrusive, and even without the "tip", was still much more pleasant than our airport personnel have been in at least the last ten years.

    I don't know how much it would take to get ours behaving like humans. At least $50. Anything less is nothing compared to their eBay businesses.

    Depressing, isn't it?

    They'll be able to fill their personnel needs in Portland easily, and those pizza boxes need only go to one location:

    Multnomah County Jail
    1120 SW Third Ave.
    Portland, OR 97204

    An iPod, perhaps... But we already have the classic problem of having paid the Danegeld.
