A travel oddity…

I’ve been through the airport lots of times.  I know exactly what I can and cannot bring on an airplane.  I’ve read all the signs at security.  I have a variety of 1 oz. samples of toothpaste and shampoo that all fit in my resealable plastic bag.  I’ve got carry-on organization and metal-free airport fashion down to a science.  But a recent flight to Charlotte en route to Florida was the first time I’ve ever seen this:

Huh?  How come old people don’t have to take off their shoes?  Does TSA fear they’ll fall over and break a hip, holding up the line even further?  What makes them think seniors aren’t just as capable of hijacking a plane as I am?  Does anyone else see the injustice in this?  I’m all for respecting my elders, but airport rules should be ubiquitously enforced.

Someone incapable of removing his/her shoes probably shouldn’t be flying anyway…
