This kind of public frustration is even more annoying because there is no control. You just have to do as they say and keep your mouth shut. The TSA employees at Newark anyway must be told in their job descriptions “don’t smile”, “don’t be helpful” “act like you could give a shit about people”, etc. So we merge into the long line and no one is happy about it.
Finally landed in Chicago feeling exhausted but not quite as pissy. Now it was a matter of catching my connection flight, which is a whole other story for another time.
