Talking What's wrong with this picture?

This was pointed out in a thread in the UA forum regarding UA replacing planes with bus service from IAH to Beaumont.

Yes, but will he turn green and grow to the size of a beagle when his bone is withheld?

How come the footprint guide is before the WTMD? Grope required prior to scan?

No, that picture is at Beaumont.

Now don't tell me that passengers will have to pass through a screening checkpoint in Beaumont to get on the bus.

That's actually what's wrong. The required TSO to Passenger ratio is five to one.

FWIW, the dyed-hair female agent pointing at the screen is the supervisor in this story.

Maybe she's saying that the dog has to be x-rayed for "classified" reasons.

Not calling BS on your story, but I'm curious: if the pic is from Beaumont how could she have been the supe in your story?

I thought it was IAH? Looks like IAH Terminal A. Maybe I'm mistaken then, my bad.

But the hair color is close.... real close.
