Never joke with TSA

By missy - 16/06/2011 02:42 - United States

Today, I missed my flight because I was held in airport security because I'd "threatened" an employee. He had confiscated my eyelash curler and jokingly I asked if he thought I was going to curl him to death. He didn't laugh. FML

but did you curl him

This is exactly how my uncle died... anal cavity search after trying to bring a curling iron on the plane

I dunno, I joke around with my airport security like that whenever I fly and all they do is laugh. maybe they just don't like you

I use to work at the airport and would have to pass by TSA to get to my job. Sometimes they were sane human beings. Other times they were cruel, heartless, scary creatures.

especially shouldn't joke at an airport. they'll arrest you if you just say "bomb"

-"this trip is gonna be bomb" -"TERRORIST!!"

you are so ugly good lord

Remember… Never ask a cop if it's true that he became a cop just because his application to Dunkin' Donuts wasn't accepted. That won't end well…

Maybe he had a feisty fight with an eyelash curler back in the day.

he also lost that fight. Americas airports have become WAYYY too uptight, however security FTW

maybe he had a bad day

number 2... u look like Selena Gomez

Back in Nam dude.

Never crack a joke at the airport.

They had their sense of humour surgically removed as part of first-day training.

removed by cavity searching.

Yes That's right this was your own fault ydi

I don't even mess with those tsa crackheads, even if I'm in uniform they dicks to me lol

how dumb are u ?? it's the airport don't joke about death lol

Police > mall cops > the guy with three teeth telling a kid they can't ride on the Ferris Wheel > TSA

Nonono. Police > mall cops > the guy with three teeth telling a kid they can't ride on the Ferris Wheel > campus security > TSA

One more correction: Normal, sane, rational human beings > Police > mall cops > the guy with three teeth telling a kid they can't ride on the Ferris Wheel > campus security > TSA NOW its right. Freakin' pigs...

TSA is getting out of control. They've become a Gestapo. Obama should finally make his his first "change" with these jackasses.

Don't talk about things you've got no clue of.

Don't end sentences with prepositions.

Airport security is one of the few places where joking is NEVER allowed. Fuck your life, though.. If he already had it, he should have known you meant no harm.. Especially threatening to curl him. I had a PEZ dispenser taken away once when I was 12, though, so..

that's horrible! if anyone ever took my PEZ dispenser, I wouldn't be able to go on.

I can understand that last time, one bit me for taking it's candy. never again, PEZ dispenser, never again.

they took my squirt gun

when we were flying back from Vegas, the security guard took my m&m's from the m&m store. just a lovely note to come back on!

seriously?! he's either being a jerk or he's actually pretty dumb!

He's not exactly going to be an intelligent person accustomed to thinking for himself if he works as TSA...

That's pretty funny but yeah don't joke with them, they take everything seriously.

yea there's no way that was a serious threat he was obviously just a douchebag and don't joke around with douchebags their douches

of course he didn't! airport security are there to keep u safe, so ur joke wasn't that funny to him!

people like you ruin the FML's. stop taking it so seriously.

or maybe he just wanted to give him a crouch inspection!

It's stupid that you were held in airport security and you missed your flight over an eyelash curler. However, when you book a flight there is generally warnings EVERYWHERE on the site, booking detail etc of what you can and can't pack in hand luggage. And I thought everyone knows not to joke in an airport on anything sensitive.

There are lists of prohibited items, and eyelash curlers is NOT one of them.

If that was true, I think anyone that can take over a plane with an eyelash curler, deserves the damn plane. :)

Screw with them! They can't stop and detain everybody.
