So here's a fun travel story... while my least favorite flying experiences are still the ones about being aggressively patted down (or the moment like right now when people are loudly having a conversation across 5 chairs....JUST SIT NEXT TO EACH OTHER!)...anyway, today will be a travel story I remember as well.
I don't travel light. I always have so many electronics (laptop (or two, external drive, tablet, sometimes an interface). But I take them all out of my backpack (along with my bag of liquids for makeup and another bag full of essential oils). I left my tablet in my bag this time, sometimes this is ok, but OF COURSE by bag was pulled aside and I went to the little "Examining table." I still didn't realize my oops until the TSA agent pulled my multi tool AND my new knife from my dad out... OOPS. At least my pepper spray wasn't in there, or anything else!!
