I have returned from my trip and am just now sitting down in front of the computer with a glass of Orvieto, preparing to relax with LPSG. (Finally)! :biggrin1: A funny thing happened, though, when I got home and opened my suitcase late last night. On top my my things was a slip from the Transportation Security Administration -- a notice of baggage inspection. (Full text at the end of this message, if you're interested -- I'm so irked by the section about breaking locks that I highlighted it in bold). Although most of my stuff was reasonably in order, those boneheads had OPENED my pill containers and there were pills lying loose with some kind of stuff on them -- as if they had tested them for contraband and not cleaned up after themselves. This really pissed me off! What if I had been an elderly person on Medicaid, and paid $10.00 out of pocket for one of the pills they destroyed? In my case, the only thing I feel is indignant, but it could be far worse for some other people. Well, I guess I can take some small comforts -- I hope they enjoyed examining my glittery pink plastic butt plug and my glass dildo. Do you think they examined them with a metal detector? Perhaps ran chemical tests? You know, it could be a conspiracy; I can hear them now: "Call in the Bomb Squad! This weird pink thing has to be a Weapon of Mass Destruction!" Has anyone else come home to find this type of surprise note in their rudely disturbed luggage? How do others feel about this practice? Is it just me who finds it to be an invasion? THE NOTICE READS: "To protect you and your fellow passengers, the TSA is required by law to inspect all checked baggage. As part of this process, some bags are opened and physically inspected. Your bag was among those selected for physical inspection. "During the inspection, your bag and its contents may have been searched for prohibited items. At the completion of the inspection, the contents were returned to your bag. "If the TSA security officer was unable to open your bag for inspection because it was locked, the officer may have been forced to break the locks on your bag. TSA sincerely regrets having to do this. However, TSA is not liable for damage to your locks resulting from this necessary security precaution...."
