Upset at the Airport

The next time you're rushing to catch a flight, and you feel like you're about to lose your cool, stop for a second and think about THIS . . .
According to a new government report, the Transportation Security Administration keeps a list of travelers who are thought to be troublemakers.
The list was created in 2007, and it can include the names, birth dates, Social Security numbers, phone numbers, and even home addresses of people who've been involved in airport incidents.

Officials say the database was created to keep records on people who make screeners feel uncomfortable, and most "incidents" involve conflicts between screeners.  Screener-on-screener crime, if you will. 

But at least 30 of them involve passengers and other airport workers who've attacked or threatened TSA screeners. 

 The question then is:  How does one make the list?  Or, rather, NOT make the list?

Apparently, there are all kinds of ways.  You can get on it by verbally abusing a screener, intentionally trying to freak people out, carrying a real or fake weapon, or through "excessive" displays of anger, like punching the wall or kicking equipment.
