At Denver International Airport for a flight back home to ABQ. My cologne, which cleared TSA screening for the flight here, was confiscated because it was “too full.”
My response, irritated and early in the morning, was “You have to be f-ing kidding me.” The TSA screener told me he “didn’t appreciate cursing,” and if I did it again he’d get a supervisor involved.
We have a First Amendment. If you don’t like cursing, stop working in a public facing job applying arbitrary criteria that results in confiscation of personal property.
This is America. I have a right to free speech, and no one has a right to never be offended.
