TSA, Airlines, and Other Idiots in the Transportation World

These are just a few of the stories out there. We’ll start today with a personal tale related to me by a customer. He has one of the pretty new DC licenses. He was at the airport and the TSA agent wouldn’t accept his ID. “I’m sorry, sir,” she said, “but we don’t take Canadian ID.” *shakes head* I’m sorry, if you cannot recognize the capital of your country, you need to not be in a position of authority.
