First they came for the knitting needles, and I didn't speak up
Because I wasn't much of a knitter
Then they came for the shoes, and I didn't speak up
Because I wear sandals
Then they came for the lighters, and I didn't speak up
Because I don't smoke
Then they came for my Dr Pepper
And now it's on, motherfuckers.
And for me, it's perfectly, exactly true.
And now this puts me between a rock and a hard place between gas prices and travel speed. Especially the likelyhood of them banning all electronics on carry-ons here in the USA I fear. I out-right refuse to part with my laptop and cell phone because of the sheer reliance I have on them both for my data and reading material.
And the amusing part? As far as I can tell, I'm the only person I've ever heard of that nearly got refused access to a plane because I didn't
have shoes on. I was lucky I had a pair of socks in my carry-on luggage.
Honest-to-god, I get to the security checkpoint, wait for my flight, get stopped by the at-the-door screener and told if I don't have footwear I can't board. Not 100 feet (though about 90 minutes) after I pass through a security checkpoint where if I do
have footwear on, I have to take it off. First time I've been told I needed to wear shoes to board an airline though. =o.O=3 comments
