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.
I'm sorry, but that's your responsibility. Don't blame other for your carelessness.
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"
#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.
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.
I'm going to have to say YDI. You shouldn't blame others for your mistakes.
why would they do that? their only responsibility is to thoroughly check your belongings...
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?
