Humour: Coming Home–The security Check

in ,

After removing my belt, my shoes, my overcoat, my jacket I made it through the portal. My briefcase didn’t. It was inspected.

The objectional item? My ball mark remover: that fork-like item that is used to repair the dimples made by golf balls as they land on a green. The item in question was a souvenir of the 2004 Rider Cup. I bought it as a remembrance of the decisive European victory of that year. Fortunately, the “Rider Cup – 2004” token had fallen off (poor workmanship) so there was no emotional reasons for the guard to confiscate. After some inspection it was concluded that it did not pose a dangerous risk–no sharp, pointed edges–and I was allowed to keep it.
