MAN is paradise compared to LIV
We're off to Ireland on RuinAir [not booked by me] for work, quick hop to Dublin and drive to Athlone.
We're only there for one night so I have my overnight bag & my laptop.
Get to the X-ray and next thing some rat-faced security guard starts rooting in my bag.
Bear in mind that it's the same bag & contents that I went MAN - Cork the previous week so I'm a bit baffled.
After chucking all my gear about he pull out my toilet bay and starts rooting in there. Eventually he pulls out a pair of nail clippers.
NAIL CLIPPERS all of 30mm long. NAIL CLIPPERS FFS
"You can't take these on the plane, these are a bladed article"
'And what am I going to do with nail clippers? I'm going to kick down the door to the cockpit and go up to the pilot and say "fly me to Cuba or I'll give you a manicure"...'
"You can't talk to me like that, you won't be getting on that plane yadda, yadda, yadda..."
My two colleagues are in hysterics on the floor at this point.
Had a thing like this in Merica, I use a Merkur safety razor. Flying from , I think it was Florida. Nice chap and he was a nice man, TSA all the way.Stopped me as I had a blade, in my razor. So it was “not allowed” . Ok . He also said I use one of these myself, ex mil I would guess.
Still he left me with the box of 3 or 4 new blades.
