Lawyer: Woman Forced to Remove Nipple Rings at Airport

A Texas woman faced extreme humiliation when trying to board a plane. As she went through the metal detectors the alarm sounded due to her nipple piercing and she was asked to step aside for further review with a wand. Mandi Hamlin explained that she was wearing nipple rings that were making the alarm sound. The TSA officers informed her that she would have to remove the piercing, which can be very painful, in order to board the plane. She says that she could hear the snickering from the male agents as she was removing the piercing one of which she need to use pliers for.

I just don’t understand why The TSA would disgrace this woman like that. A simple solution would have been for her to expose the rings to a female officer, use the wand, pat her down and allow her to board the plane. What is wrong with these people, did they think she was going to hurt someone with a nipple ring?

Urinal Bags Don’t Sit Well With Union

Communications Workers of America Union Officials in Colorado say that the telecommunications company Qwest, tried to get their male technicians to use disposable urinal bags to cut down on bathroom time. A manager at Quest actually handed out 25 bags to some male technician and they were told not to spend time looking for a bathroom when in the field. The union has stepped in, but has not filed a grievance yet.

A local union administrative director said that while the union deals with a

“a lot of silliness in corporate America, this one takes the cake.”

Completely inhumane and ridiculous!

    Hmph… very interesting. Thats funny but sad about the metal screening. Sometimes it does get a little ridiculous. While I do think that the security that guards against this is needed, it sometimes gets a bit outrageous and common sense should be applied.

    Yes, we also thought it was funny, but felt bad for the lady involved. The TSA has come forward since this incident and said that they would change the methods used for searching someone with body jewelry on. Common sense could have helped the guards involved, if she can’t remove them without a pair of pliers, I think the passengers would be safe.

    I wonder what kind of metal those piercings were made from… My tongue barbell never set off any TSA gates in the entire 4 years I had it, nor did my braces when I was a teenager.
