This is my first edition of STOP THE STUPID.
Supposedly there is a petition going around, but I searched for 2 minutes trying to find it, and didn't. I'm not linking it, or attempting in anyway to make you want to sign it... It is all fun and games around here, I saw this crap on the news.
Common Sense is such a rarity these days...
Airlines, where is the common sense..
You can't bring batteries for your child's toy........ but can widdle a stick, hmm I didn't realize The Beverly Hillbilly's ran the world.
You can only have 3 days worth of hair gel......but can have our bottle cap opener handy, because you never know when a random beer will just be sitting around on the plane that needs to be opened STAT.
Gingivitis prevention is much more of a concern than say, a pocket knife. Clearly mouthwash spit into one's face is of much more concern than an object MEANT to puncture something, right?
Now breast milk may be permitted, MAY BE, after a TSA guard confirms the contents of the container. Because, we as mothers, are told not to whip out a tit and latch a kid, but in order to feed our baby someone must test our milk. The possibility of outside contaminants are the EXACT reason we nurse.
Don't be alarmed, folks, you can bring any amount of liquids on board if they are checked in.... But it will cost you.
Don't forget to take out a second mortgage to pay for the bottles of water needed to mix that formula for your baby's bottle, Oh and you can bring that overpriced souvenir bottle of wine onto the plane that you just purchased at the airport gift shop and bring that on board. Because everyone knows not to waste alcohol, and a bottle has NEVER been used as a weapon. I wonder if the people making the rules are drunk?
You are damn near molested to get into the gates to board a plane, you run the risk of catching athlete's foot taking off your shoes but yet you can brink a pocket knife on board.
