Last Friday I flew to Montreal carrying in my carry-on bag a pair of scissors with blades shorter than 4 inches (allowed by the U.S. Transportation Security Administration).
Yesterday morning at the airport in Montreal the same scissors got confiscated.
Me: I flew here with them from the U.S. and now you are telling me I can’t take them back?I laughed. What more could I have done?
Security guy: I know it’s stupid, but the 4-inch blade exemption doesn’t apply in Canada.
Me: This is good. I will write about it on my blog.So then, with the security guy’s “permission”, I am now writing about it.
Security guy: You can, Sir.
There will be more stories like this as long as cretins are drafting the regulations that regulate us.
