To the Security Man at Dublin Airport

Thank you for noticing that I’d accidentally left my floggers in the bottom of my backpack. Better you than my parents.

I could have done without the less-than-subtle display and extended Q&A on their identity and use; I’m all for increasing kink-awareness, but the post-screening recombobulation area isn’t an appropriate environment. Again, however, better there than the Christmas dinner table.

  1. Reminds me of the time a strap and a tawse was found in my hand luggage and put back through x ray machine and travelled though with other luggage much to my embarrassment. Your story made me smile but glad you fidnt lose them

  2. Just seen this – reminded me of the rather charming Hispanic lady at O’Hare who I think I told you about? But she was much more tactful than your Dublin guy – and much better informed too, it seemed….

  3. Do your parents make a habit of checking carry-on bags before allowing you to join them for dinner?

    1. Not usually. However, they have been known to try to be helpful unpacking. Mainly because I have a tendency to just dump things and sort through the pile later- neither of which would have been good in this case! In any event, they remained safely hidden for the whole trip, and have safely made it home 🙂

  4. I used to work in an airport and it was a standing tradition that if the person on the x-ray screen seen a sex toy they would red flag the bag in the hope of embarrassing either the security person who took it out or the traveller. Pathetic but I guess they were bored.
