Eh TSA agents in Kahului: thanks for teaming up with the state and the county to make me miss my flight to Oahu. Really, good job! Well done! I, a disabled veteran, had to stand outside of the line at your lowly I.D. checkpoint for 20 minutes, because you couldn’t figure out what to do. See, my drivers license expired on my birthday. I got a new license, but they issued me a paper, cut-out license. Because it wasn’t made of plastic, you said it wasn’t acceptable. So, being a dolt with a badge, you had to get a supervisor to accept my ID, but he was somewhere else in Kahului. Oh, and I don’t know if you read the papers (obviously not), but last week the TSA announced that 2.5” pocket knife blades were now allowed on airplanes–but I guess not 1.25” mini-scissors. I have medical needs that require the scissors I got from the V.A. Didn’t mean a lot to you, because you relieved me of my scissors and delayed me just long enough to miss my flight. I miss the military, where there were rules based on fact. Yours are based on fantasy.
