I’ve learned that it’s okay to take these items from Orlando to Seattle, but you better think twice if you think you’re going to bring them back! Those three items were apparently on the one-way ticket addendum I missed.
Now, yes, I know all about the gel/liquid ban and the plastic bag limitations, etc etc. I just forgot. I decided to go carry-on instead of checking bags and nothing was confiscated in Orlando.
But in Seattle the toothpaste, shampoo, and hair gel were all in containers too big to fit in a bag. So after scanning my bag, they opened it and took those out.
“I flew here with them”, “I guess they missed it” went the conversation.
Oh well. I’m not going to get into a tussle over items like that. But it did make me wonder, why is the amount of shampoo a hazard? It’s not that I couldn’t have it, just not medium-sized amount.
I don’t get it.
They still missed the body spray in my computer bag and contact re-wetting drops in my pocket.
