You know there was a time when a guy would use a public toilet and didn't need to worry about having something to read. Nope. That's because the crapper stall wall was full of graffiti - enough to last the duration of your stay. I don't know why but my favourite was always something along the lines of "For a good time, call Bob's Mom at...". Ha, ha, I knew all my buddies' moms I didn't see any of them as providing me with a "good time".
But times change. There's less graffiti on the bathroom wall these days but there's more outside the bathroom for a guy to worry about. Take for instance the latest dust up around the approach being taken by TSA agents (Transportation Security Administration) in the States. Or maybe I should say the latest feel up.
I guess the terrorists have won. TSA agents are stepping up their efforts to protect the flying public. They now use x-ray machines that show so much you might as well strip down to pass through security checkpoints. Hardly surprising a guy might think he's trying out for a centre spread in Playgirl Magazine.
"Is it me or was that security check more thorough than usual?"
But that's not the worst of it. If you refuse the x-ray or if the agent determines it wasn't revealing enough, then you're going to be subjected to a pat down. From all accounts the pat down is fairly invasive. One guy was quoted widely as saying "If you touch my junk, I'm gonna sue you."
Then, of course, there may be flight delays because of this new procedure. Not because it slows things down in and of itself. Rather, some guys might enjoy it so much they may rush to the back of the line to subject themselves to being groped all over again. Hey, for some guys it may be the most romance they've experienced in months.
This man aroused...suspicion.
But there may be a downside to the TSA arousing such a reaction among the traveling public. I can see washroom attendants spending more time cleaning the graffiti in the airport facilities in the future. Scrubbing madly to remove such messages as "For a good time, call TSA agent #74 @ LAX".
