This happened in November from Darwin to Singapore and I totally forgot to blog it! Hope it helps with the Monday blues ;)
*walks in with two typewriters in hand to the security scans in the airport*
Guy in front of the scanner: “is that a laptop?”
Chick at the screen of the scanner: “It’s a typewriter right? Right? Right?
Wait hold on… it’s allowed in the airport right?!”
Serious guy at the end of the scanner: “Can you please open it up.”
*me all worried that I’ll get in trouble and opens the case up*
Serious guy’s face lights up and asks if I work at the courts. Two other officers join in and we have a nice chat.
Felt really good having that chat with the security guys, then we moved to the international customs…
Customs guy in most dalek voice:
“STOP THE SCAN!
EXTRACT THAT PACKAGE! …
What the heck is a typewriter?”
