Security – quick funnies

October 6th, 2008

This story has been going around for some time but it is quite true – Pilot’s have a huge axe located in the cockpit, but small people with big uniforms at the security check points still insist on taking away their nail scissors. I can personally confirm this story, it has happened to me more than once. In fact it has happened to me so often that I started suspecting the airport staff had established a blackmarket trade in used nail scissors. I would just like to know why they feel a pair of nail scissors is so much more threatening than an axe. Is it that perhaps when I’m flying I will get so distracted with thoughts of attempted take over that will completely forget about the axe and attempt to stab my colleague to death with the nail scissors? I guess no one has ever thought about the fact that locked cockpit doors could also be used to lock the second crew member out? But seriously, is a pair of nail scissors really a dangerous weapon – crew member or not? I don’t mean to make light of what happened on 911 but please someone tell me why I keep loosing my nail scissors!!!!
