    They'd probably tell you to step aside.

    Well, unless they pick me up and physically move me - assault - I'll just patiently explain I'm waiting for my ball handler. After all, I'm following the rules to the best of my ability. I can't help it TSA has gummed up their own works. At the airports I've been to there's nowhere to "step aside" with the brilliant new set up. What? Am I just supposed to take my sock footed self, where? in front of the entrance to the screening machine? in front of the entrance to the line? there's nowhere else to stand now, and juggle bins and my luggage while my pants fall to my ankles? Ain't gonna happen.

    I've tried tying up the lines in protest but they're so slow these days that no one notices.

    So I'm intensely curious what would happen if after the TSA person finished enhance patdowning me, I proceeded to insist I give them the exact physical enhance patdown? Make them turn out their pockets, run my hands all over their body and all that.

    you'd be corrected on your procedure and put through remedial training.
