I'm sorry, but that's your responsibility. Don't blame other for your carelessness.

Bad luck OP

Doesn't appear as if she's blaming anyone but herself. Unfortunately, this is a pretty common side effect of being human. I'm just surprised this didn't end up happening to myself as often as I forget things just like this! That really does suck and it's bad luck that you had to have a brain glitch that cost you your laptop.

She's clearly not blaming them, it's just a way of explaining that she forgot it. She said she wishes they reminded her, not they didn't or they should have. The FML probably wouldn't have had quite the same effect if it simply said "Today, the security at the airport were nice enough to remind me to take the laptop out of my bag. I forgot it. FML"

Yes, however it's the security guard's job to alert the passengers of large electronics. This FML is saying "Today, someone did their job, and then I was careless. FML." This is a total YDI.

#12 is right. OP isn't blaming the security agents for anything. It was a sufficient way to get across the message of the FML- that OP lost her laptop. I don't think OP's wording or anything else implies that the loss was her own fault (objectively, yeah, *she* left the laptop, but who isn't absent-minded every now and again?), it sucks to lose something so important. Even if it's by her own doing, I don't think that's quite the same thing as her deserving it. FYL, OP. FYL.

Im not certain you understand the concept of 'YDI'... Why on earth did she deserve to lose her laptop simply because she forgot it? Yes she was was at fault, but that certainly doesn't mean that she deserved it.

That really sucks of them to do, but how did you forget it? I don't want to sounds like I'm blaming you, but I love my laptop like a child, so I can't stand the thought of losing it. I hope you got it back ok, OP, and I hope you weren't inconvenienced too much.

What sucks of them to do? The tsa agent who told op to remove the lap top would have been on one side of the scanner, whereas the agent who did not remind op to grab it was on the other side of the scanner and probably had no idea who it belonged to. Completely deserved.

I think 34s point is that not only was it not the TSA responsibility, the guard she saw last wouldn't know the laptop was hers. You gotta be extra vigilant in the airport.

Every airport I've ever been to has one tsa agent reminding folks to do these things prior to going through the scanner. On the other side is another agent entirely. Harry asked her to remove her laptop before she stepped through. John would have no way of knowing it was hers.

Two words - personal responsibility. More so in this case, a lack thereof. If I left my keys in my car in the inner city and it was stolen, there would be no argument that I deserved it.

That sounds to me like she's blaming them. Usually they put forgotten items to the side so you can come back and get them. Hopefully op remembered before getting on the plane

Their responsibility is to get folks through the line. The agent who reminded her to remove it and the agent who did not remind her to pick it up were likely on different sides of the scanner, and the second agent likely didn't know it was hers. Either way - how the hell does a laptop get forgotten?
