Memorable car of the day:
The Olds Golden Rocket Concept, Good thing it didn't make it, probably would have been an Edsel.
Entering the court house once the guard wanted to take my knife. I said I will take it back to the car and leave it there. He smiled and said, “I don’t blame you!”
It was mentioned 2 or 3 times about losing pocket knives at the airports. I left one with them also. Funny family story about that:
In their earlier years grandsons Corey and Ben would fly out from Utah for the summer. Once they picked little toy rifles to take back home. They were actually small replicas about 3” long and ¼ thick. No holes in the barrels even. Corey went thru airport security first and Ben second. When they stopped Ben and took his little gun, Corey looked back and said, “You didn’t take mine!” Then they did!
I have always wondered what happens to all the things confiscated, so I finally asked Mr. Google.
The TSA refers to them as “Voluntarily Abandoned Property,” and contrary to popular belief, TSA employees do not keep any of it for themselves. The agency has a zero-tolerance policy for such behavior, and employees can be instantly terminated if they're caught pocketing confiscated items for themselves .May 19, 2017
So any items taken by the TSA become government property. The TSA makes no profit off of items that travelers surrender at checkpoints. Each state sells the TSA confiscated items at auction. The state decides which auction service to use and the state keeps the profit.
I wouldn't bet the farm that some things do not make it to private homes. I hear much conficated is sold at govdeals.com. I am checking that out ……………..
Probably not a bad place to shop, I didn’t see much of interest to me and I did not see anything that appeared to be from TSA.
Take care and remember don’t carry your pocket knife if you plan to board a plane. That goes for you girls too!
