Won’t Be Kidding Again

| Working | May 24, 2015

(My daughter and I are visiting my parents in NC when she falls seriously ill and must be hospitalized. I’m forced to return home for work reasons while she’s still in the hospital and I’m upset about leaving her. I’m in the very crowded security line at the airport, looking somber, when a TSA agent leans in.)

TSA Agent: “Smile! At least you don’t have kids with you.”

(At this point, I lose my composure and burst into tears.)

Me: “My daughter’s in the hospital!”

TSA Agent: “…”

(I hope in the future he thinks twice before making insensitive comments to people he doesn’t know.)
