Like many people I traveled over the holidays and unlike many people I had stress free travel days. My security lines were minimal and I bounded into the full body scanner and assumed the position. I love the full body scanners that have appeared in the last decade at airports. I get that the full body scanners used by security in airports are not beloved by everyone. A quick internet search reveals that many people have privacy issues with these machines while others worry about the radiation. But not me!
Since these machines have shown up I get patted down maybe one in ten times that I fly. Before, it seemed that every trip to the airport resulted in a security guard patting down the side of my chest to feel the wires in my bra. I don’t know about you but I prefer being scanned to being felt up.
Are you getting felt up less by airport security with the full body scanner?
