Default All these people complaining about airport security...

Let me tell you a story - When I came to canada, I forgot to empty out my purse before boarding the plane. I don't know why, but this totally skipped my mind. I cleaned everything else, but my purse never got the full sweep. It went through the machines and I had forgotten I had a lighter in it. The lighter had no fuel in it, it was just a shell. I kept it because my dad gave it to me as a gift because it was shaped like a penguin and had a baby penguin engraved in it (so it looked like a penguin baby and mother). It's my favourite animal so he bought me this empty lighter. And they took it, and threw it in the trash.

Whatever, I said. My own fault, I guess.

I get home, to my new home, and unpack. My boyfriend knocks my purse to the floor, what falls out?
A BOXCUTTER.
I worked in produce at a grocery store and used boxcutters to cut the plastic to unload trucks and open boxes of fruit and veggies. I kept it in my purse because we always had our boxcutters stolen by the other departments.

I had to throw away an empty lighter shaped like an adorable little penguin mother sheltering her penguin baby, but my boxcutter made it through, somehow. We were stunned and I've never understood this.

I flew to and from Orlando with a pocket knife in my purse. I always have one on me, so I never thought about it. Made it through both times without an issue

ETA: although a month or so later, I took the BUS to Peterborough, and for some weird reason they had security there, and they stopped me wih the knife LOL (luckily I just passed it to my Parents)

They tried to confiscate sheet silver from my mother (that's solid sterling silver sheet) because it had "sharp edges."

Because 64 year old women hold up airplanes with precious metals all the time.

Then there's this:

I got surrounded by 3 National Guardsmen and their semiautomatic weapons all because of blunt tweezers (that I has totally forgotten). You know, as a 5 ft. tall, 110 lb., blonde girl, blunt-tipped tweezers were definitely my weapon of choice.

My dad was stopped once because he he had a swiss army knife keychain on his keyring. He had to run and put in his bags that were about to be checked.

Another time my parents almost missed their flight because my mom had a bullet in her wallet. She had it in there because she had been looking for a certain type of ammo for one of my dad's guns that he had acquired from my late uncle, and forgotten to take it out. We joked that she was going to use it by throwing it at somebody real hard and hoping it worked.
