Well, you've got me there. I seem to recall that assurance as well. So maybe it's not so much of a numbers game than of a percentage game? If a certain percent went through the WTMD, wouldn't that...

Thank you. I do try to help whenever I can and talking about numbers seem to be a safe enough avenue. All businesses work on a supply/demand basis and we're no different in that regard.

I can't speak for other TSOs at other airports, but here - where opt-outs don't go through the WTMD - we could get into trouble if we allowed an opt-out to go through. The reason being is that it...

It shouldn't be that way. :mad: Gosh, it really shouldn't! There has got to be a way to objectively look at passengers without all this guilty until shown innocent crap. There has to be a way!

All I can say is the "feeling people up" portion of my job is a very tiny portion of my job. Thank. God. Roughly half of our time is spent in baggage at the current time. It's no secret MYR is...

I like this. I've always been a proponent of the combo WTMD/Bulk Item Patdown. Sure, it causes a few skirt wearers and baggy shorts wearers annoyance but overall, I liked it. And I really miss the...

You know, not to sound too "big brother"ish, if our intel came strictly from our own department, I'd wonder sometimes. The reason I do pay attention is because the vast majority of our intel comes...

I've wondered about this since. Gosh, I sincerely hope not, but I'll never know. All I can do is press on and keep trying.
