Reply To: Humour at Homeland Security

Not sure if this is funny or sad.. but I once behind a chap who was asked to put his right hand on the pad for finger printing. He did so, but the officer was not happy. He was asked again and again the officer was not satisfied. After the 3rd attempt, the officer very rudely asked the passenger if he needed help and if so step aside and he will get a colleague to help him in a few minutes..

At this point, the man held his right hand up to show he only had 2 fingers, the others having been amputated.

Rather than an apology, the rude office bawled this guy that he should have told him.

With wonderful restraint and in a very calm manner… the guy said:

‘pity you cant see the missing finger’

Welcome to America….
