TSA Palm Desert Airport

What an experience, yesterday 10/16/12. For our early flight. Going thru security... We are frequent flyers. We know what to do.

They, Stephan, Robert, a lady opened my suit, went thru my purse, took out my labeled tube of meds, contact solution, opened my Trish Make up, no liquids, went thru my stuff searching, how intrusive. Messed it all up.

They were out of control. need to be re educated. How come these items e thrust JKF, LAS, LGA, SFO,CLE

TSA supervisors, Mary Bono Mack will be cc out of control TSA are not good for an airport. We had a great time in Palm Desert

Well....did they go through the Palm Desert airport also even though it seemed to be more of a nuisance?

I assume the contact lens solution and make up are liquids that should have been separately packed in a one quart plastic bag. I'm not sympathetic here.

I'm glad to know TSA was alert.

100% with you LSCats.

>>TSA supervisors, Mary Bono Mack will be cc out of control TSA are not good for an airport.<<

Am I the only one who hasn't a clue what that sentence means?

>>We are frequent flyers. We know what to do.<<

Then you know that all liquid belongs in a separate clear plastic bag, right? So why didn't you have one?

I think cc means that those two will be getting a copy of the letter or e-mail.

By the way, the airport is in Palm Springs.

Mary Bono Mack is one person, congress woman from Palm Springs, wife of Sonny Bono, diseased. I am sure the congress woman will get right on this case.

ThanksSS,

Sonny may have been "diseased", but I think he is now "deceased", meaning dead. Maybe from his "disease"? Or from carrying contact lens solution outside of a sealed plastic bag?

Perhaps when folks have issues with TSA, they are so angry that they google TSA and skip the A ( notice the typos above ) and then file a complaint here. We need to make sure the TA DE in Palm Springs takes care of it right away. To the OP -- We've got you babe!

Hey puter, have you ever typed your replies on an iPad? Well that's the result. Unfortunately for Mr. Bono, he did not die of any disease. He was deseased by accident.

Hey TSS this latest version of the iPad TA app is so buggy. When I reply to a thread at times the top bar disappears and text from another post appears. Do you have the same issues
