Escape Endless Airport Security Lines

We’re lined up like cattle for slaughter. People are tired, kids are screaming, and worst of all, the whole thing moves like molasses in Antartica because people refuse to come to these security lines prepared.
Come on, you’ve seen the guy who steps up to the security belt and then decides to remove his belt, empty the 15 pens out of his pocket-protector, remove God-knows-what from each his pockets, slowly untie his laced-up shoes, remove his coat, remove his computer, and then gets sent back through because he had bottled water in his carry-on bag. ACK!
Sometimes, I think it would be a good idea to have a giant rubber hand come out of the wall and slap you on the head if you come unprepared to this massive bottleneck in our airline transportation system.
Here’s a few questions for you:
Skip the line, put your bags on the conveyor belt, and go through the metal detectors. That’s it! You walk through the airport security line like you’re the President of Monaco, or something!
How you ask? Sign up for the TSA Pre-Check that is currently being rolled out across the nation. It’s not yet available on all airlines, and in all airports, but it is certain to be coming soon to an airport near you.
Now that you know, sign up for this program right away, or you will see Carol and I waving at you as we pass you by standing in line. Instead, breeze through with us and let’s go have a mocha latté.
