This is very funny, but I fear it is typical.
…it’s not always due to the leg room or the obese passenger in the aisle seat (see “Arijit Vs. Delta”).
I have the greatest disdain for the security theatre at airports. Sadly, it’s taken to extremes at US airports. I’ve never understood why the majority of passengers not only endure the humiliation of being herded around like kindergarten children, but many become quite defensive when someone (not necessarily me) has a bit of harmless fun with checkpoint procedures or etiquette.
