He Needs a Vacation After His Vacation An agent of the Transportation Security Administration forgetting to return a passport to xhunter33x in Miami while on his way to Trinidad for three days led to a string of unfortunate events. When all was said and done, xhunter33x experienced significant delays with airport security personnel; was “down one mud mask and six lighters and was now the proud owner of a Bose headset that is broken in two”; and the bag which contained those items was missing in Los Angeles after the return flight.

Have you experienced a similar situation in Japan? Do you have any helpful advice for flynhwn?
