Cali always makes long layovers in hopes that you'll spend money in their state!

Nah, no groping. They haven't been using those scanners at the airports I've been going to lately; however, the US customs is fucking irritating at the very least, and I'm getting damn sick of the inefficient TSA "security" lines. And if they did, I hadn't showered in almost two days (12hr flight from nz at 11pm + layovers), so my balls were something rancid at that point.

Now, I don't look middle eastern at all -- at all, yet as I was getting questioned about what I do for a living, by a guy that didn't even understand the basics of economics, let alone business consulting, another undercover agent came over and asked if I spoke arabic... because I have a fucking beard. Then as I was in line at the final checkpoint, because they are obviously concerned about getting everyone out in time (yet they only opened two desks to filter through almost 200 passengers at the first checkpoint), the guy got pissed at a mexican because he didn't hear him (not that he didn't speak english) tell the guy to get his passport out -- so the guy went to the end of the line. The customs agents make the TSA agents look like fucking angels who have a useful job and do it well.

Then I get to Houston... Where one person moves through the "boarding pass and id" checkpoint every six minutes. It took these fucks 6 minutes a person to check if the boarding pass matched the id and the person... Really? With 10 minutes to catch my flight, I finally get to the scanner. They were training a new idiot at the carry-on scanner, and she didn't know how to check laptops -- I had two. So what do they do? Oh, they don't get somebody to just say "this is what you do, which you should have learned in fucking training, you jackass". No, they show her how to call over the 70yr old cripple who does the manual check. I express to the guy that I have less than 10 minutes to run all the way to the end of the gate to catch a flight I was there with more than enough time to catch, and all he says is, "Oh, it's just down that hall, this wont take long..." So he slowly shuffles over to his table of testing equipment, not even noticing that he took the wrong laptop (I had already snatched the other and put it in my bag), and rubs it with some tab, sticks it in a machine... the machine fucks up. I have to do this three times -- all while some overweight retard asks questions a 3yr old with underdeveloped logic could figure out with 2 seconds of pondering. I zipped my bag so quickly afterwords, I broke the zipper off and ran. There were 3 people left to board when I got there.

In the future, I think I'll just take the week long boat trip and get there quicker.

In Canada we can bribe customs agents with beer, not that we need to though.

Face it Kifle - being a drug mule doesn't suit you. Any chance you can get back into the Mexican brothel business? :)
Having said all that, the situation has been handled, so this thread is pretty much at an end. -Kossuth

Lol, nah, the drugs shipped over fine. The only thing I had on me when I went back to the states was some scales :) And no, I quit that company because the owner was a retard, and I couldn't take the stress anymore. I'll take airport annoyance over that stress anytime.
