It’s kind of a game I play with myself, I try to do everything I can to make sure everything goes smoothly when going through the airport TSA checkpoints. No underwire bra, no jewelry, shoes that slip off easily, all liquids in the plastic bag and my laptop, ready to be whipped out and put in the bin. I also put my other carry-on items in clear zip lock bags. this way the TSA agent screening the luggage can see what I have and if they need to open my bag, hopefully, they don’t have to unzip the clear bags my items are in. I’m funny that way, I just don’t like people touching my stuff.
On my recent trip to San Francisco, I was very satisfied: no alarms, nothing done wrong, and I didn’t even have to go through the intrusive x-ray machine….a good airport trip. Wow, do I miss my earlier days of traveling!
