That is NOT what is happening in real life. Out of the last four times I've had the misfortune of encountering a TSA checkpoint, twice the TSO rudely pulled my shoes out of the pin and placed them on the belt.

Of course, in NRT, in HKG, in KUL, in SIN, I never had to take my shoes off in the first place.
