Reader Email - "You Are A Jerk"

Friday, September 29, 2006

Well, that's the jist of some emails we got from, I'm guessing, people from FlyerTalk who have made it their lifes work to hate the TSA.

Especially they seem to use us as a target for their resentment about the wanker who is now famous for putting graffiti in his luggage. We consider that a pathetic bid for attention and the act of a juvenile mind, but he's lauded in some anti-TSA circles. Whatever.

Look, I'm no Pollyanna (read the book, don't move your lips too much), but I had a gate agent tell me something very significant, early in my flying career (I paraphrase):
I like how the business guys smile at us, and then sit down and read their
Wall St. Journals, and don't stand around the station trying to argue the
late plane in early.

Hmm, point taken and lesson learned. I think we're all just trying to get somewhere with the least amount of hassle. Yea, verily, even the Wednesday before Thanksgiving!
