As a few of you already know, I started a new job as of today. I am now an employee of the Transportation Security Administration as a Screening Officer.
Yeah, that sounds all cool and dandy, but what it actually means is that I tell you to dump out all of your liquids when you fly anywhere.
Anyway, I am really looking forward to the job. It can lead to so many places and promotions to other agencies (DOT, FBI, NSA, CIA, etc.). Security is what I have wanted to do for a long time so I am looking forward to it. Should be a lot of fun as well as a good job and career opportunity. I was sworn in today (yeah, the whole to serve and protect and so help me God and everything)
I start my first day at the airport (AMA) tomorrow and have a week of training next week in Oklahoma. They are putting us up in a nice swanky business motel (gotta love where those tax dollars go) so I should have Cafe access.
Anyway, thought I would share the good news with my fellow cafe members. Should be fun stuff!!
Oh and no, they haven't taught me to do this yet.
