Bounty,

But I AM a dangerous sociopath!

Going back to Maggot's comments about his encounter, it's doubtful that one could get any lawyer to take an interest. Woman cried wolf, manager found no wolf, everyone went back to work unharmed, end of story. Hopefully the manager explained to her that a box cutter is the appropriate tool to open boxes. That's why they're called "box cutters".

Maybe from now on put her in charge of opening boxes, and by all means, don't let her see the paper cutter! Better yet, let's remove all sharp and pointy objects from the workplace. Gotta keep the lawyers and the WSA (Workplace Security Administration) happy.

It's time to reel in the lawyers and get back to the real world.

Steve

ENOUGH BAD-MOUTHING OF LAWYERS! LAWYERS ARE NOT THE ROOT OF ALL EVIL!

As far as I know, I am the only admitted lawyer active on this forum. The facts described do not give rise to any lawsuit I can think of. The matter is too petty to be litigated. No lawyers have suggested any action. All the trouble is being made by you non-lawyers. SO STIFLE!

Incidentally, this thread is supposed to be about TSA. More than half the posts in this thread do not relate to the TSA. Lets stick to the subject.


Growling under breath while stomping back to cave,

John

Bounty,

I'd answer your question, but my wife tells me that my memory was the second thing to go.

Bounty... I'm surprised, that sounds like something I'd come up with... didn't somebody compare me to the "Paperhanger" when I suggested the same actions albeit on a bigger scale from our government?

I just started working part time at JFK in NYC as a paramedic. I hate TSA because of the same reasons you guys do. Now mind that I'm a street medic. If 12 lead EKG machines for my PDA were affordable most likely I would have one in my pocket so short of that I'm pretty much set. Gotta be ready when ankle pain stuff turns out to be a shooting with traumatic arrest. Job at JFK even thou is a paramedic work is not as unpredictable as street work plus we always have backup so being well equipped is optional. Not for me. I still carry all my junk and make sure it is seen especially when I'm going thru the TSA check points. It gives me huge satisfaction. I have my folder on my belt and fixed blade in my boot plus a multitool and yes zippo lighter and shears and rescue hook. Screw them, I know they are just doing their jobs but I also know that some of them are pushing the limits.

That boot knife of yours is a double-edged Applegate too isn't it? LOL I bet they love that one.

Concerning your response, -"Only if you keep distracting me,"-(Refering to her feeling a danger in the matter), -That too could potentially be a real Hot Potato to step on!, -with such a person, in such a Situation.

Of course I'm sure you were referring to dangers such as tool Slippage, etc, -which could occur by accident, -as a result of the distraction.

But such a person could conceivably take that as a direct / personal threat.

We can't, and shouldn't have to step gingerly on every last little thing in Life. But we wisely should on some, -and I think that this may well count, -as one of them!

I speak so here, -to Alert you or others, -to a Real Potential Pitfall and Danger here! [color:"black"] [/color] [email]Maggot[/email]

A person such as her, -conceivably could take this sort of Gift Giving, -the wrong way too. (See my earlier response in this thread to Maggot.). My view could well be, -"I Wouldn't if I were you!", -to quote an early 80's Hall and Oates line! Done Intentionally or Not by her, -She *could* so function as a sort of "Maneater"!
