"I hated it from the beginning. It was a job that had me patting down the
crotches of children, the elderly and even infants as part of the

security. I was even required to confiscate nail clippers from airline
pilots—the implied logic being that pilots could use the nail clippers
to hijack the very planes they were flying."
