when you drink iced tea with real lemon, ever notice that the seed ~always~ immediately finds its way into the straw?  keeps you from drinking the tea!

When you go to a movie theatre and the person with the biggest hair or tallest ~always~ sits in front of you!

I find this really annoying. 

When you are in a department store, any shop actually, but more in a department store.  You have chosen your item to pay for, go to the counter, up to three sales girls (ususally girls) are chatting together as though you were not even there/invisible, and finally one looks up and says', "Are you being attended to" or some such  :sos:

Can't abide the rudeness of it to be honest.

Yes I agree, the straw, the ice and the seed is a fact.  That is Murphy's Law so they say. :blink:

Airport security;   :smash: going through my carry-on b/c I have a container of toothpaste slightly over the 3 ounce limit;  :thud: confiscating it.  LOOK AT ME,  :look: not my luggage.  Do I look like a terrorist?  :winchesty73:  I'm old.  Get real.  Stop wasting your time and mine on folks who are ready for the funny farm.   :soapboax:

All my liquids go in my checked bag.  I have a mission at the TSA Screening Checkpoint:  get in and get through quickly.  The longer I'm there, the longer I'll probably be there.  I've yet to have secondary screening, but, I'm ready for it. ;)

I know the changes at airport security since 9-11 have been interesting to watch evolve.

First year they got a pair of itsy bitsy scissors, following year it was the shoes on & off, and then last incident they wanted my Star Trek communicator thingy...
BUT I was able to negotiate on that one with collaborating evidence...
by reciting the Finale of the last Star Trek Voyager by heart until I was an annoyance to them I think  :lol:

I figure airport security staff could fill a whole forum with their experiences with passengers.  Bless their hearts.

How you know you fly too much:

"Unattended luggage presents a security risk, and could be confiscated and destroyed.  Passengers are urged to report suspicious luggage or activity to the nearest airport employee.

"Smoking is prohibited by Washington state law and airport regulation to the designated smoking areas on the baggage claim drive only.  Thank you for your cooperation.

"Seattle-Tacoma International Airport would like to remind you that the Port of Seattle Police and Fire Departments are here to serve you.  In case of an emergency, please dial 9-1-1 from any public payphone.

Liquids, aerosol cans and gels in quantities exceeding three ounces may not be carried through any screening checkpoint."

And that's just while waiting at SeaTac airport... were not even in the plane yet. ;)

I drive into the petrol (gas) station and all the pumps are busy with drivers filling up - except one where there is car but no driver. I queue up behind that car assuming (correctly) that the driver is in the shop .....

Of course, the shop is a mini mart and the driver is doing their weekly shopping  :smash:

the truth is funnier than fiction...   :D

as to gas lines (as i can only address one topic at a time...)

if you wish to pay with cash on a saturday night, you must wait in line while everybody and their brother buys lottery tickets.
"excuse me sir, do you have a non-gambling line?"  (of course not!)
