Encounters with Mopes

May 20 (16 hours ago)
I had my toothpaste confiscated on the way to Chicago. Apparently it was a threat to National Security. Actually, it wasn't the toothpaste that was a threat, but the fact that it wasn't in a ziploc bag.

I tried to argue (mistake right there) that ziploc bag was intended to contain MULTIPLE items (as indicated on the signage), and that putting a single item in a ziploc bag wouldn't contain it anymore than if it were not in a ziploc bag. It's still one item.

Nope. Rules are rule. Move along, goat.

Apparently ziploc bags are bomb-proof.
