That's fine for young people, but until they give me a place
to sit down to take them off and another to put them back on,
I'll continue to call it age discrimination.


I'll quite happily submit to back-scatter scanning and take my shoes off
if required; to hell with civil liberties protests. If I were sure of
their guilt, I'd favor disappearing over the sea, Argentinean style, for
Quaedists.


Oh, I'm fine with the x-rays; I just want a chair for taking my shoes
off.

I used to travel in my hiking boots, to avoid having to pack them - now
I wear a pair of slip-on clogs.


So Mixi isn't unique. I had a boss who used to travel wearing all his sailing
waterproofs.


But I wear trousers/slacks, not shorts.

I haven't seen the rear of a security area without some seating for a
couple of years now.

They've all had at least a couple of chairs at the back behind the
area where you get your stuff back.
