Never thought I’d say that. I arrived at TPA a few minutes ago and headed straight for security. After I walked through the metal detector without setting it off I was “randomly” selected to go into one of the full body scanners. As a matter of principle I object to this (I don’t trust TSA agents to have access to such graphic images), so I asked for a secondary instead. The agent reluctantly complied and called over another agent to conduct the secondary on me, saying that he had a “non-compliant passenger.” Eh, whatever.
Anyway, the other agent couldn’t have been more professional. While the secondary took about five minutes, he explained everything he was doing, did everything without expressing any frustration, and made sure that my personal belongings were in my sight at all times. I guess it’s sad that I was so impressed by a TSA agent, but I couldn’t help but say “thanks for being so professional” at the end.
The only awkward part was when I had to turn the top part of my jeans inside out to show him there was nothing in there since it kept setting off the wand. Don’t worry, I didn’t show him my concealed weapon. 😉
