Frisky TSA worker finds sex toy, leaves note

Jokes are more popular than a frisky TSA frisking, but what if you could combine the two and include a sex toy reference?

One carryon-checking TSA worker managed to do just that, according to an article posted on Gawker.com.

Air traveler Jill Filipovic, who packs a “personal item,” sent the website an email including the pic of a a TSA luggage inspection notice adorned with a personal note from a federal worker – “GET YOUR FREAK ON GIRL.”

Filipovic, who writes the Feministe blog, seems to have a sense of humor; she gave the email a subject line of “Hilarious/Horrifying?”

I’d say neither.

It’s another unnecessary government intrusion into privacy, but I tend to be cranky and Libertarian on Mondays. At least the TSA worker didn’t provide his/her phone number.

In other news, TSA workers missed finding a loaded handgun that fell out of luggage in Los Angeles.

Business as usual for the TSA. Their “officers” keep embarrassing the agency one perverted action at a time. How can anyone take this agency seriously? So these goons act like immature adolescents when they see a personal item in a suitcase, and we are supposed to believe they are somehow going to twart a terrorist? Yea right. This just proves this brazen abuse of passengers is rampant in this out of control rogue agency. I’ll bet some talking-head TSA spokesperson is going to release their generic response that they do to every TSA blunder real soon. “We’ve thoroughly investigated the incident and the officer followed procedures blahhhh blahhhh blahhhhh…..”

For every one person who writes that note, there are thousands who, upon finding such an item, ignore it and keep doing their job, rooting through your crap so you don’t end up a smoking greasy smear on the countryside. Get a little perspective, and a touch of gratitude.

TSA can provide more criminals by turning over their employee rolls than by continuing the harassment of flyers.

A memorable encounter I had with Atlanta TSA agent: She said, “gitcha hands outcha pockets and walk through.”

You have to remember that the TSA came about under W and Rummy and Skeletor (a.k.a. Chertoff). TSA employees were new federal employees lumped under “Homeland Security” (Oooo, what a scary name! Keep the sheeple scared!). They don’t have the same rights as regular federal employees (no collective bargaining, easily fired), their pay scale is lower, their educational requirments are lower, they’re “training” is not up to par with border agents, port authorities or your average gumshoe!
You get what you pay for, folks! And we didn’t pay much for TSA; the Yugo of federal agencies!

Well, at least he didn’t hold it up in the air and announce “Will the owner of this device please step forward to claim it? To make sure it isn’t explosive you must turn it on to show it works.”

People give TSA such a bum rap, you either want security or you don’t. You can not have it both ways, if you do not want your “personal things” gone through? leave them at home and stop your complaining. Lets see anyone of you do there job, chances are you would not have a clue.

Mary, I do want security, but not elementary school behavior. Are you suggesting that if we want security, we must allow TSA agents to make rude jokes about us while submitting to inspection? Are you suggesting that if TSA agents call a woman out of an airplane to display and turn on a “personal item” that it is what we should expect of our fine professional TSA agents?(This actually has happened)

In my experience, most TSA agents do their jobs respectfully. Behavior as described in this article has nothing to do with security and should not be tolerated PERIOD.

@Really?

you don’t want to be made fun of, LEAVE YOUR FAKE DICK AT HOME. again, if you have a issue with TSA then stay home, don’t fly. I don’t like renting cars, the people that work at those places are stupid ( IMO ), so you know what i do, I DON’T RENT CARS, see how easy that is, you don’t like the TSA, THEN DON’T FLY, it’s not brain surgery, any fool can figure this out, you don’t like something, THEN DON’T DO IT.

The TSA should be fired. The ignorant TSA agent was unproffessional. TSA agents will continue to get away with sexually abusing passagers with the wands that they use and inappropriate touching as long stupid people like Jill Filipovic finds humor in this abhorrent invasion of privacy.
I guess there is a special code of honor between nasty freaks. Ha Ha

The “phoenix falcon” poster is either a TSA Agent, related to a TSA agent, dependent on $$ from a TSA Agent or “kicking it with” a TSA Agent.

Every TSA Agent needs to be fired and sent back to the airport food court where they all belong.

Perhaps she can find another compartment to place the object in for travel, so it won’t be in either her luggage or carryon. As long as TSA doesn’t go poking around in there too! I have no problem with her bringing along the toy, it’s cheaper than paying for a man’s ticket.

Oh, and while you’re at it, let’s hear what you think of VIPR on the roadways. What is your solution there? Don’t like it, don’t drive? I get the feeling that if you aren’t a troll, which I highly suspect, then you are of the mindset that if the TSA were frisking pedestrians on every street corner, you would say, “IF YOU DONT LIKE IT THEN DONT LEAVE UR HOUSE GOD ITS NOT ROCKET SCIENCE HERE PPL”
