  •   bstednick Wft! Paying $25 for checked bag is better than losing your favorite piece! 2d
  •   ryanbmartin @bstednick plot twist.they are from checked bags the TSa just takes them. Like the did my iPad. @tsa 2d
  •   bstednick @ryanbmartin that's just jacked up. I've heard of massive theft rings at some airports. It's not like you can charge them either, you're already too far. 2d
  •   donmarholding FYI the TSA isn't the only people that have access to your checked bags...I'm just saying. 1d
  •   ninkdole You should never put anything of value in a checked bag to begin with. Just clothes. If people don't know that by now then I don't know what to tell ya. 1d
  •   donmarholding So true @ninkdole 1d
  •   janebrinkley @charlesbracewell the comments made me laugh almost as hard 1d
