You know what? At some point you have to say 'no' and be willing to walk away from the train, the plane, or whatever, and take some other mode of transportation or just not go. Everyone has to do this. It's called sacrifice for the better good. I'm not trying to be snarky or anything, just realistic. If everyone resisted, and/or stopped going to events, this crap would stop. For me? I could have taken a plane to my destination yesterday. The flight would have taken an hour and a half. I just got here - after a 14 hour drive. And yes, in the morning I will be calling Alaska Airlines (following up with a letter as I always do) letting them know that I'm still not flying due to the TSA. I've been doing this a year now. I always remind them that I was an MVP Gold for the last 9 or so years so that they realize I was a good customer. I've walked away from events where I felt the search was too intrusive (usually at clubs). Sometimes I ask for a manager and talk to them. I'm always polite and the longer they keep me waiting, the longer I have to educate people in line with me. I do this when shopping too. Ask me for too much personal information and I will educate everyone in line about why we shouldn't give the company this info. I'm good that way.
