@21: It can be an error. If the server isn't working at the best, comments can sometimes get buried randomly. Usually it's lots and lots of comments that get buried all at once. Anyway, I hate the whole burying system. Who doesn't expand a buried comment out of curiosity? @OP: Profiling sucks. Teenagers are always viewed really unfavourably for some reason. Despite what the media says, most of us are not rude, violent drug addicts.

Yeah - airport security people can be real jerks at times - that's why I travel real early in the morning. That way - nothin's really happened that ruins their day, and they tend to be in a much better mood. It's all in when you travel....

No. Airport security has the authority to search any suspicious bags. Normally they pull people with bags they want to search aside, but it may not always be the case. Tightened airport security measures are BS, but the lady was still being a douche. New rules charging people per bag they bring cause situations like this. Not much you can do.

Actually, TSA was commissioned by Congress only to search for things which would endanger the airport or airplanes. If she was actually told by the screener that she was searching her bag for drugs and illegal teen things, the submitter should contact the ACLU, I think they're actually starting a lawsuit over this.

I'm not even a teen anymore, but this still PISSES me off. If I made a comment anything close to that about another age group, that would be unacceptable. It may be because I'm going into education, but I think people of ALL ages deserve respect until they've proven otherwise. I once had a coworker who called me "just a baby" all the time and then was offended when I was surprised that she had a myspace account. Sorry you were treated so rudely OP.

I was searched once. Apparently a deck of cards looks a lot like a bomb in the x-ray machine. Or something. They were nice to my stuff, though.

I agree completely--I had people I hung out with on a regular basis refer to me as "just the baby" because several of them were near 30 and I was 20. The night I lit into them about maturity levels and the fact that they couldn't conduct themselves in an adult manner in public.... Well, they didn't refer to me as the baby any more and I stop hanging around. It bothers me when older people do it too--I don't look my age, nor do I act as if I'm in my early 20s, and people are surprised t

What does this have to do with anything? I don't think people want to hear about your hanging out stories.

I agree with number 6. That bitch should have to put your stuff back together. She didn't have to dump it either with no care at all.
