I had one TSA employee at MCO absolutely insist to me that it is a new FAA rule that all pax must remove shoes.

Unfortunately, it appears that they just make it up as they go.

I went through the same thing in TPA. I told the man that I go through these machines 4 times a week and I have figured out which shoes have metal in them and which don't. He said "he didn't care" and "take them off or turn around.

There is a big difference between safety and security. TSA has nothing to do with safety. They should be looking after security, but the wat they go about it, very little is added to airport security by TSA.

I've never experienced at security what you did.

Frankly that TSA agent was doing his job. He has to be strong about safety. I'm amazed that an airline employee could explain away what this agent thought was a safety violation. Good for you.

Does "doing his job" include being rude to the original poster ? I agree with the original poster, the rules need to be UNIFORM, it seems like this TSA agent was on a power trip like many others.

You are joking, right? That TSA agent should be fired and sent back to the mall or condo security job he probably came from.

Hey, he made it clean and green as far as I'm concerned. It wasn't as if the TSA agent groped him. Yes, I've been groped several times yet those people still keep their jobs. So this FTer with the skateboard didn't get much of a hassle as far as I'm concerned.

I think the real question here is why the heck did you subject yourself to going through security in order to have TGI Fridays? To each their own.</font>

I think I'll stop here. I'm only ticking myself off about this, and I'm not even flying anytime soon. After this post, I expect a full body search next time I carry my laptop onboard.

The last time I really got ticked off by security was when they got my laptop security cable in April - which had been in my carryon for the last 2+ years (even the days just after flights resumed in Oct 01).

Suddenly it is deemed a security threat. Coming to think of it, isnt the laptop power cord as potent a weapon as a security cable?
