The Shame!


At Liverpool, John Lennon airport.
Just been felt up by a very unattractive old man at security
He had trouble running his fingers around the waistline of my shorts
V V V embarrassing

  1. Don't let that bother you John! They are used to bigger sized waistlines! Enjoy your trip.

    The reason that I have not flown since 2015 is that I dislike airport security. It is worse in this country than in any other I have been to and that includes the USA, Israel and RSA among others.

    Have a great time, enjoy the local wine and get a tan on the terrace.

    1. There was a time when you would arrive at the airport and pretty well get on a plane, even to America, with nothing more than a quick flash of your travel documents and passport.

      Little did we realize what was about to be unleashed on the air traveller. A so-called security man, old or young, groping inside ones trousers in is disgusting. Especially if you've stood in a frustrated queue, in a room with no windows, for an hour or more to arrive in front of his searching fingers.

      We are descending into hell. Civilized standards are becoming the unusual. We accept anything no matter how inconvenient.

      I pissed off with it all. I rarely go on a plane. It must be 2 years now. I'm sorry I don't get to see so many friends and relatives as I used to. But the whole business seriously pisses me off.

      When was the last time that a a white septuagenarian Welshman blew up an aeroplane?

      Have a good trip and don't get into trouble.

    2. You should see what I go through. I have so much metal in my body that silverware and small Korean cars can attach to my body. Or so it feels like ! I always have to be search.
      The nicest security is in Japan, the strictest was Israel (I understand and they were very nice) the USA is indifferent at best.
      Many years ago I was traveling out of Rome right after the airport massacre there. Walk into the airport and no one is there but a few people at the ticket gates, Then I look and see the Army walking around with Uzi Guns and everywhere on walkways they were stationed.
      You went to your Airline Gate then where checked in and whisked to the back and checked again.

      cheers, parsnip

  15. Don't worry about it ... you probably made his day ;-)

  16. I hope you don't feel a sense of assault from his wand.

  17. On Tues. I 'sailed' through the scanner and the TSA said, "Thank you young lady." I had a good giggle! There are a few left who still have manners and a sense of humor - not many though here in the US airports!!!

    Have a wonderful time in Spain - they know how to relax. . . . and eat. . . . . and drink good chilled rosé in Summertime.

  18. Two years since I sent through an airport. Wouldn't mind if I could guarantee a handsome, young man on security - but then he might go on to express disgust at having to frisk me, so maybe not.

  21. How embarrassing !
    I remind myself when I get impatient waiting for security to let us get on the damned plane already... is that everything they are doing hopefully ensures that we get off the plane safe and sound.
    I lived in NY ... there are some sights that will never ever go from your mind .. inspect all you want, Mr Airport Security Man.

  24. Airport groping scrutiny . . .what a thought . . .

    Enjoy, relax, celebrating your sissy’s 70th!

  25. Well how very rude, he could have at least asked you to dinner, given you flowers, even his phone number.

  26. TSA security checks oft make no sense. Once witnessed a frail, very dignified, elderly woman being patted down at Logan Airport. Pat down every 5th person?

    1. Everyone should be checked because even the 100 year old lady with dementia could have been given a gift or had someone "help" her while slipping a bomb into her coat pocket ...dignity is just another victim in this disgusting new trend of airplane bombers and radicals.

    2. Agree with Candice. Check one, check them all. What the hell. I was made to take my boots off (just in case) in front of airport check in queue behind me whilst my (then a child) son had his belt removed. Yes, England. Can't be too careful. Not that the motherland is any better.

      Then there was a time when equally young son and I went to mainland Europe by car. Eurotunnel. Brill. They pulled me over. Took the car and my house minus the kitchen sink I hadn't packed apart. Sniffer dogs all over the place. Sensors pushed underneath my beloved horse power Citroen. Whilst all this going on I chatted to the person in charge. "One woman behind the wheel, one child?", I asked. Yes, precisely, he said. Your outfit so innocent you are the perfect target/involuntary carrier having parked up getting your Pret a Porter sandwiches in the terminal before embarking.

  28. Relax and enjoy, nothing to be embarrassed about, he has seen it all, felt it all

  29. I've never been felt up at the airport. (And Kylie's comments cracked me up.) Why did he have trouble running his fingers around your shorts; was he just too excited?

  32. The least they could do is hire attractive young men to do the job! Actually, that might be worse ...

    I never get tired of trying to cheer up bloggers by saying "at least it gave you a good blog post" so consider it said again :)

  33. Hit the beach and veg out.

  34. So what made him want to frisk you in the first place? Were you acting suspiciously? (Sorry, I may have missed an explanation somewhere in the 52 comments!)

    ReplyDelete
  35. Was it his unattractiveness or his old age that made it bad?
