If fingernail clippers are outlawed only outlaws will have fingernail clippers

Recommended Posts

When I was young I took my toddler daughter to Hawaii and she bought a tiny, shiny Hawaiian themed nail clipper there.  This was less than an inch long.  She put it in her pocket rather than putting it in her luggage when we packed bags. It showed up on metal detector at airport and after a few minutes of searching it was found in one of her small pockets and security officer immediately took it (did not bother to ask) and said it was not allowed because of the less than 1/2 inch blade used to clean under fingernails.  He said it could not be taken and threw it into a box.  My daughter started crying and I took it out, broke the tiny blade and gave it back to her.  I then told TSA guy "it is now safe. Must make you happy making a little girl cry."  The guy had absolutely no empathy and was in wrong job,

I don't want TSA to have empathy. He is perfect for that job.

You make a guy feel bad for doing his job.

With some of the dark things you've said on this board.........I'm glad TSA is checking your luggage thoroughly.:devil:

I want the TSA employee to use some common sense. He is in the wrong job. Sometimes good judgment is not quantifiable. But you recognize it when you see it being exhibited; and you recognize it when it is not exhibited.

Kinda like porn?

"Common sense" is not required; since the rules make any such determination irrelevant.

The only way to make that TSA agent more perfect for his job, is to make him a robot.

Gradually getting more comfortable with stretching the rules is why we are in this problem to begin with.

What did he miss while he was saving the public from a rogue nail clipper?  Few take TSA seriously.
