Manners & Security


At 7, Emma took her first airplane ride. She was ushered through the security checkpoints after we received our boarding tickets, passports in hand. I told her to put her little carry-on bag into the plastic bin.


“Because, it has to go through the security screening,” I explained.

The woman, a customs official, backed me up and told her, “We just run it down the line and the X-ray machine looks at everything inside your bag.”

Emma looked up at her, “Well, that’s rude.”
