I went through the TSA check line twice at LAX a few days ago.
I had to get inside the terminal to buy ciggis and had to go back out to smoke them.
3 hours after my first pass through I did my second and neither time was I scanned or patted down and just went through the metal detector and my bags, shoes, belt and pocket contents through the scanner. Wheeeew!
Funny thing is on my first pass I forgot that I had coins from my home country in the coin pocket of my trousers and the metal detector didn't pick them up???
Thank goodness I only have one US domestic flight to get through for the rest of my life.
I don't think I will be coming back because of the stress this whole situation causes me. Uuuugh!
I'm sure that this will reduce the number of tourist's coming to this country?
