.....sounds like FUN! And, according to a couple of male friends of mine, we should get to CHOOSE who pats us down. Now, I did fly recently but I was not given the honor of a pat down. Not sure if I should be offended by this or not. I got nothing. No x-ray, no pat down, no shoulder brush. I feel cheated.
I was actually a total noob about the whole process. For one thing, I didn't know you were supposed to take your shoes off. I didn't know it until I saw the guy in front of me do it and then the sign on the xray machine that said "Put your shoes on the belt directly". I know...I'm lame but the good news is I was wearing cute socks cuz I ALWAYS were cute socks and most people's socks were lame. So THERE! Take THAT airport snobs!
BTW, I'm a sock lover so feel free to send me some socks as a prezzie :) K thx!
