While coming back to the U.S. from Puerto Rico, the TSA pulled my husband aside and did a most thorough search of his suitcase! The fellow took out each garment and rubbed the paper that tests for gunpowder/explosives over it. When he put it into the 'machine,' it obviously gave a positive response, as they kept on searching...He tested everything in the suitcase at least 3 times for gun-powder/explosives. The tests/delay was over an hour and a half. We missed our flight to the U.S. Ultimately (I think) the machine was malfunctioning! People were called in to work on it and they just gave our guy the 'nod' to let my husband go on...
Goodness! What were they looking for? And why did they think that my husband had it?
And after all the 'hoopla,' our guy called ME over to repack my husband's suitcase!!! I said, "Sweet-heart, you took it out...you put it back." He replied, "I took it out...if you want it put back, YOU put it back!"
I have always been quite co-operative with TSA -- considering the alternative! Now, I am wondering if the TSA are not the thugs in this situation!?!
Please set me straight!
