My main issue with the TSA is their inconsistency. I dont care if i cant bring XYZ items, but at least be consistant about it! A coworker used to travel with a "Magic Bullet Blender" in his carry on for almost every trip, the logic was that its better to have a fruit smoothie in the morning than deal with crappy hotel breakfast. Good times were had until a transfer at SFO and in a re-screen a TSA agent caught it. After a 10 minute discussion on their **** up, eventually it was returned to my coworker and we continued on our day. Myself? 2 (metal) pocket knives, they're "magic" knives which I use to keep up with my sleight of hand when im bored, lock pick set, and a ceramic knife set I picked up at a trade show. Ive been stopped for the lock pick set before, but it was returned and I continued on my way. I dont normally try and get away with things, but batman happens and you forget. Your stories?
