"One problem I've found is that when the TSA takes over ID checking, there is a sort of "laziness" factor which sets in. The ID checkers tend to chat with every screener walking by, tend to stop looking at IDs & BPs for lengthy periods to check on other things, etc., and generally "take their time" getting around to their jobs."

Unless there are screeners standing around and waiting as there are no passengers in the security lineups themselves, then this is not a rate taking step. Essentially, you waited in this line as opposed to waiting longer on an actual security line.
