Idiotic People or Idiotic Rules (or both?)
I struggle with how to feel about people who get upset while going through airport security. There was the guy with 10 jars of salsa throwing a fit that the TSA was removing it from his carry-on and yelling about how they'll have a "salsa party" (food not dancing) in the break room. On one hand I think he's an idiot, we all know the rules, but on the other hand the rules are idiotic, and none of us should have to follow them. If his salsa carry-on were civil disobedience, I would be more supportive, but once you start throwing around baseless impromptu dip party allegations you lose the moral high ground.
