Nudity At Airport Security
A bit of a moan. I love airports and travelling but I dislike all of the over the top security - supposedly for our own good - terrorists and the like. Thank you Messrs Bush and Blair - huh!
I just knew I'd set the alarm bell ringing - even though I'd taken off my belt and put all coins and keys in the x-ray tray. Karin walked through okay then, as I expected, the bell rang as I walked through.
This meant two security officers had to swing into action. The first, a woman, instructed me to remove my shoes. The second, a man, did the frisking bit.
So I'm left standing there, no shoes, no belt, being frisked while the other travellers are all looking and probably sniggering to themselves. Needless to say I was 'clean'.
One of the things that annoyed me most was the security officers attitude - no politeness, no smiles. You daren't joke yourself. If you do there's a chance you could well miss your flight.
We are no longer free people (if we ever were, of course).
And on the return flight from Mallorca I set the alarm off again!
This time the Spanish security officer, a woman, didn't seem too bothered - she didn't even want to frisk me. I thought I'd better not insist!
No idea why I set both alarms off, it's never happened previously. Karin joked (when out of sight of the security bods) that after my operation last year the surgeon must have left something metal inside me. That cheered me up no end!
The photo I got from Australian Blogs. I guess if we all had to strip off it would make going through airport security a bit more interesting.
