    I was subject to a very thorough pat down.
    Later, while I was still quite pissed- I learned it was because I had an underarmor fleece on, and it seemed “weird to the full body scanner.”

    @Plantfoam
    Miami has been fun for me also. I tried flying from Miami with hand tools in my carry on. TSA regs state hand tools 7 inches or shorter are allowed but final decision rests with the TSA officer. I've flown several times with the same tools. Miami TSA screener told me I could not have them in carry on. I didn't want to pay $35 to check a bag, so what were my options? Remembering my TWIC card is issued by TSA, I told the screener I have a TSA security clearance card and gave him my TWIC.
    His supervisor quickly cleared me with the tools and told me to have a nice flight. It was kind of funny.

    Plus you don't have to go through the millimeter wave scanner, which always gives me false positives, and then someone has to brush my scrotum with the back of their hand.
