I just wanted to post what was a pretty positive experience with the TSA, and the screenings, we just experience for our trip last week. Departing from our home airport (Grand Rapids, MI) the TSA agent who checks your ID was very nice. So much so that I can't help but wonder if they are doing a bit of retraining. My 20 yr old nephew was the only male traveling with us, and the agent told him that even though he was hanging onto a pink tote bag (my 11 yr old nieces's bag) that it was ladies first. I've not had any really horrible experiences with the TSA agents, but they usually don't joke with you. After that the next agent said that as we had a younger child with us, we didn't have to go thru the backscatter machine, we just went thru the WTMD. Bonus! Though when my other niece and her dad flew down the following night all they had opened was the backscatter machine. She said it wasn't a big deal, she just had to hold her hands over her head. Though her dad was called out for still having his wallet in his back pocket. Flying home, the agents in Orlando were there normal selves. To the point, and polite. The did divide us up into 2 groups, so if you are flying soon be aware that your family may be split up going thru security. And for some strange reason a couple of us ended up with our shoes shooting of of the belt. All in all it was a painless experience, with not a crabby agent in sight.
