Airport security is a real chore. Gone are the days when you could turn up at the last minute, throw your bag through the scanner and expect to rush through security to catch your flight just as it was boarding. Now you have to give yourself plenty of time to allow for a full de-robing, body search and Spanish inquisition at the security gates. Don’t get me wrong, the Government is keeping us safe, but I’m forever amazed that even after the enforced de-clothing and de-cluttering of one’s person, I can STILL walk through the scanner and set the alarm off! I’m quite sure that no part of me that is metal, yet it happens to me every time…
I always remove all the metallic things (belt too) and stuff them into my hand carried bag before going through security. Don’t want to risk losing my things by putting them on the tray.
I think you have too much iron in you. 😀
I should stop drinking the guiness perhaps!
