A friend gave me a gag gift he got from a gun show for my birthday in November. A pair of American Flag "brass" knuckles.
I took them and threw them in my bag to put away when I got home... Except I must've forgotten and didn't. Fast forward to today.. I'm flying to California and was telling the artist I'm working for about how I always get that feeling I'm leaving something dangerous in my bag like a knife. Then, the TSA agent says, "Yep. You did." I figured it was a folding knife or something, but then I saw it outlined very clearly in the scan. Freakin' knuckles. My heart sank immediately because I know how much of a headache this could turn into...
I said to the man, "Dude, obviously I wouldn't intentionally try and bring that on the plane. I would be an idiot to think that would work."
They brought two cops armed with AR-15s(which I thought was awesome) to talk to me. They took my ID and checked me out and then asked if I wanted to surrender it, which of course I was cool with.
It was my fault. I was in a hurry and checked every pocket for routine stuff like spare mags and loose rounds.. EXCEPT the interior pocket that I put the knuckles in.
I was wearing my TRUMP Rambo inspired tshirt and the TSA agent told the cops to tell me that the only reason I was free to go was because of my Trump shirt. LOL
Anybody else do anything similarly stupid?
btw, I've been more lurking lately. I just bought a motorcycle and have been preoccupied with that. Haha
