In the tense new world of air travel, we're stripped of shoes, told not to take too much shampoo on board, frowned on if we crack a smile.The last thing we expect is a joke from a Transportation Security Administration screener - particularly one this stupid.Rebecca Solomon is 22 and a student at the University of Michigan, and on Jan. 5 she was flying back to school after holiday break. She made sure she arrived at Philadelphia International Airport 90 minutes before takeoff, given the new regulations.She would be flying into Detroit on Northwest Airlines, the same city and carrier involved in the attempted bombing on Christmas, just 10 days before. She was tense.What happened to her lasted only 20 seconds, but she says they were the longest 20 seconds of her life.

After pulling her laptop out of her carry-on bag, sliding the items through the scanning machines, and walking through a detector, she went to collect her things.A TSA worker was staring at her. He motioned her toward him.Then he pulled a small, clear plastic bag from her carry-on - the sort of baggie that a pair of earrings might come in. Inside the bag was fine, white powder.

She remembers his words: "Where did you get it?"

Two thoughts came to her in a jumble: A terrorist was using her to sneak bomb-detonating materials on the plane. Or a drug dealer had made her an unwitting mule, planting coke or some other trouble in her bag while she wasn't looking.

She'd left her carry-on by her feet as she handed her license and boarding pass to a security agent at the beginning of the line.Answer truthfully, the TSA worker informed her, and everything will be OK.Solomon, 5-foot-3 and traveling alone, looked up at the man in the black shirt and fought back tears.Put yourself in her place and count out 20 seconds. Her heart pounded. She started to sweat. She panicked at having to explain something she couldn't.

Now picture her expression as the TSA employee started to smile.

Just kidding, he said. He waved the baggie. It was his.

And so she collected her things, stunned, and the tears began to fall.Another passenger, a woman traveling to Colorado, consoled her as others who had witnessed the confrontation went about their business. Solomon and the woman walked to their gates, where each called for security and reported what had happened.

A joke? You're not serious. Was he hitting on her? Was he flexing his muscle? Who at a time of heightened security and rattled nerves would play so cavalierly with a passenger's emotions?

You think its k to trick people who are about to go on a plane like that? Get them scared and make them think that they are carrying illegal substances...

Just a TSA worker trying to get a laugh at someone's expense. He should be reprimanded for that but not fired.

Should be fired. That is so screwed up playing someone like that, especially being a screener and with what has happened lately.

should be fired

no matter what happens, anyone in that line might actually think she's a coke head.  Or more likely, doesn't handle stress well.

but, based on the fact she's an attention whore and had to have the entire internet know who she was...

i think they both should be fired.

I thought you could be prosecuted for making jokes etc. about airport security?

Fire his shitty unprofessional ass. Hire someone who actually takes pride in their work and doesn't treat it all like some fucking joke.

It's as bad as a cop pulling you over, saying you're wanted for murder and treason and conspiracy to commit terrorism, then saying "JK LOL".

This. And you can call her a pussy all you want, but the fact of the matter is if that happened to you, the first thing you're going to think is you're off to Gitmo and freak the fuck out. And if people get arrested for making jokes about bombs or drugs, there's no reason that should be allowed the other way around.

On an unrelated note, I would.

Shiiiiiit.

I would probably act the same as she did if that happened to me. I mean, shit. How are you supposed to explain yourself in the heat of the moment? With some big security guard standing over you, demanding an explanation while people look onto you? Id be sweating like a rapist and utterly speechless.

It scares me enough just going through checkpoints even when I have nothing to hide :\

Either he should be fired, or the rest of the world should be allowed to make bomb jokes at checkin again.

Clearly you haven't traveled to the US. The majority of TSA screeners are overweight.

Haha, that's a fair point actually. I mean, I'm not scared of them, but I'm never sure where to look at so that I don't look suspicious and I have to go through the pain in the ass of having my bags taken apart.

I went to the US in 2002/3. Cant remember much but I can rememeber some massive muscly guy standing over everyone at airport security.
My dad wore steel-capped boots and never took them off. This made it worse every time we went through a CP because we'd have to wait while security was constantly checking everyone else, and getting suspicious at my father.

They have a zero tolerance policy for jokes from those being screened.

Seems the same should apply for them.

Fucker needs to find a job at Home Depot...which is what most of them are marginally qualified for, anyway. With few exceptions, they are truly a joke.
