So strip searching old people is "reasonable" to you?
I don't know what goes into TSA, and i never will. I don't care to go around to places and pretend like i know how to do someone's job better, or that i know the reasoning behind their actions. I don't get visibly angry or mock them for doing their job, and i sure as hell don't run to the newspaper every time i feel slighted by anyone.
I go out everyday with the understanding that there truly are assholes out there in this world, and that i most likely will have to deal with a few in a given day. What I don't
do is pretend like every person that is affecting me negatively is an asshole, i don't assume every person that shares the same job as someone who affected me negatively is an asshole, and i don't pretend like I didn't expect someone to negatively affect me in a given day.
All this outrage is BS. we KNOW what happens in airports, just like we know what happens in a doctor's office. We shouldn't pretend like this is something shocking. If you don't want to deal with high levels of security, stay out of airports.
We know that their job description does not read "humiliate old people", and we can only assume that most people are simply doing their job, and not being intentionally sinister.
So, I will go through my days, understanding there are assholes out there, dealing with roadblocks and inconveniences as i go, avoiding airports if i don't want to deal with heightened security, and not generalizing about entire groups of people and the jobs they choose; and you can go complain about how you believe these people are out to get you and are dead set on humiliating you and your family and let it color your life from that point on. Or you could just deal with it and understand that people suck sometimes.
