tsa #TSATravelTips - Worried about losing or forgetting your watch or jewelry at the security checkpoint? No need to worry, because you don’t have to remove these items. If you choose to remove them, it’s best to place them in your carry-on bag instead of a bowl or bin. When it comes to removing items from your pockets, It’s best not to place expensive items such as money clips in a bowl or bin. When going through a metal detector, you only need to worry about removing metallic objects. When being screened with a body scanner, you must remove all items from your pockets. 6d
  •   doulaphotographer I've been told to remove my watch, and my earrings. It's not standard across the board, unfortunately. I was also once asked to remove my navel ring... That upset me. 6d
  •   zombiedeity Yeah, the TSA shouldn't make public statements like this to the whole Internet unless they're going to train every single agent to follow the same policy. 6d
  •   davidcsi Agreed. I've also been asked to remove my watch, many times. 6d
  •   edmondor Not to mention being told to place my wallet in the bowl, at a few airports. Inconsistency in enforcement is what slows down air travel to a snails pace. 6d
  •   christiancrau You don't need a coma before "because." 6d
  •   dragonfaeriee Yeah the belt thing still has me confused. @acepeezy I didn't have to take it off in ATL but did in CLE. And when you take it off it actually becomes a weapon. Wouldn't it be safer to leave it on? 5d
  •   nella_bella7 You guys need to start following the TSA so we can get updates @felipe5177 @_monicagrace @gloriaalires 5d

  •   amo1911 I don't see why people who have their CHL can't carry on board. 6d
  •   steen_hansen @amo1911 Name one good reason to bring a gun on board a plane. 5d
  •   amo1911 @steen_hansen so I can have it when I get off the plane. You wanna know how big a PIA the TSA makes it for me to check my firearm at certain airports (Dulles)? Besides, it shouldn't be any concern of yours anyhow. 5d
  •   kjensen6 amo1911 @steen_hansen I agree with Steen_hansen - Anyone wanting to being a concealed handgun on board any flight I am on IS my concern, you fool! 4d
  •   amo1911 @kjensen6 Kathy, go pop one of your Xanax w/that boxed wine of yours and chill the fuck out. No one asked you. It's nosey, gossip, good for nothing, worthless, do nothing, non-contributing bitches like you that are turning this country into a cuntry. See what I did there? I wish more women out there were more like the #womenofEDC. Kathy, learn something from them. Until then, keep your opinions to yourself unless someone asks for it. 4d
  •   amo1911 And I love how you contribute to the Instagram community with your many beautiful pictures, @kjensen6. You created your account just to see other people's stuff and leave rude remarks about other people... What a cunt. 4d
  •   kokuryux @amo1911 @kjensen6 was simply telling you how she felt about people who carry guns on aircrafts. It's not nosey at all because this is a public comment section. You probably support the second amendment, but probably don't know that one comes before two. Go read the first amendment before calling people nosey in a public setting like Instagram comment sections. 4d
  •   amo1911 @kokuryux You're a fucking idiot if you think this has anything to do with the first amendment. Moron... 4d
