Well, we get to airport security and the metal detector starts going crazy! I asked the guy if it was my belt and he says, no, it's something higher on your head. Um...My bobby pins, lots of them! I had to walk through a couple times and then he asks me if I want to take them out and I said no (my hair would've looked really terrible then). So I had to be searched and padded down.
Not just by one person but by 2 (one was in training)! The one being trained kept putting her watch by the wand and it would beep every time so she kept having to start all over searching me again and again. The trainer finally realized what she was doing and was angry with her! At this point I thought we were going to miss our plane!
They finally decided I wasn't a threat and let me go, we were the last ones to board the plane! They had been waiting for us. Anyway, the moral of the story is....
Never, ever wear bobby pins to the airport!!! : )
