Even more stupid - Idiot security staff
On a recent trip to the USA wth my Daughter we met by far the most stupid staff at the security screening.
My daughter who is disabled is 13, about the hight of the avarage five year old.
First they refused to beleve her age and when shown the passport went off to check her passport with a supervisor as they were convinced it was fake.
My daugher has 2 rods in her back. She can not walk very well. But they insisted she walks through the screening. Very difficult and distressing for her.
The alarm goes off.
We give doctors letter about the rods.
"Scary lady - keep away"
they take a scared little girl to a glass booth, make her walk and refuse to hold her hand
Search her with the metal detector. The alarm goes off.
Then proced to remove her clothing.
A second security fool keeps us her parents away.
More messing with the metal detector, and finally she has no clothing on from the waist up.
Security person now noticed the long scar running down her back.
"does she have any metal in her back" she askes,
Yes - read the letter we gave you.
She now reads the letter.
The next thing is the fool is complaining that my daughter should have told her.... She is Disabled, she has speech and language problems. HOW can she tell you.?
After all it was not her fault she treated us all as criminals first then asked questions later.
All this happened in public view.
We spent over 30 minutes at this security check, BTW it was Chicargo Airport.
If this lady was a representative of the avarage Security person, then I am no way supprised that this incident happened.
