While passing through a security checkpoint shortly after 9 a.m. Monday, Maher set a metal detector off because she had accidentally left her watch on.
But she said the airport screening staff immediately pointed to a bag on her hip, claiming it was full of money.
Not to make light of the situation, because
A) what a bunch of assholes, and
B) Even worse to learn that apparently airport security is shitty all over, and
C) I can identify with the helplessness this gal obviously felt, and it sucks.
But if I ever have a colostomy (and yeah, it’s probably somewhere in my future) I sure hope I get one of those money-excreting ones.
