TSA Worker to Passenger: “You ugly !!!”

[Headline from DRJ]

Rochester airport security worker fired after passing mean note to traveler:

ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WROC) — A bizarre story from the Greater Rochester International Airport: A security worker was caught on tape passing a note with a mean message to a traveler. As a result, she lost her job.

That traveler, Neal Strassner, said the worker gave him a note as he was passing through the security checkpoint. After he passed through he began walking away and heard the worker yell back at him “You going to open the note?”

At that point, Neal says he opened the note, which said “You ugly!!!” and the employee began bursting out in laughter, which you can see in footage from airport security cameras.

The video is at the link. The passenger isn’t ugly.

  1. Is she related to Trump? “Wrong side of the blanket”, even maybe?

  5. So, it IS possible to fire a federal worker.

    But I bet you if it was back-office humor, looking at monitors, they’d be laughing their asses off, their supervisors included.

  6. She was not a federal worker. She was an employee of a private security company contracting with the TSA. Yes, yes, we are in the best of hands. Thanks, Trump!

  8. Meanwhile…….

    New goal for New York Times: ‘Reframe’ American history, and target Trump, too

    “The basic thrust of the 1619 Project is that everything in American history is explained by slavery and race. The message is woven throughout the first publication of the project, an entire edition of the Times magazine……

    …..The Times promises more 1619 Project stories in the future, not just in the paper’s news sections, but in the business, sports, travel, and other sections. The Times’ popular podcast, The Daily, will also devote time to it…..

    ….But a project with the aim of reframing U.S. history has to be more than a bunch of articles and podcasts. A major goal of the 1619 Project is to take the reframing message to schools. The Times has joined an organization called the Pulitzer Center (which, it should be noted, is not the organization that hands out the Pulitzer Prize) to create a 1619 Project curriculum. “Here you will find reading guides, activities, and other resources to bring The 1619 Project into your classroom,” the center says in a message to teachers…..

    …….The paper also wants to reach into schools itself. “We will be sending some of our writers on multi-city tours to talk to students,” Hannah-Jones said recently, “and we will be sending copies of the magazine to high schools and colleges. Because to us, this project really takes wing when young people are able to read this and understand the way that slavery has shaped their country’s history.”

    They’re putting pedal to the metal to inject race into everything as we approach the attempted re-election of a president they frame as racist every day.

  9. She crazy

  10. “She was not a federal worker. She was an employee of a private security company contracting with the TSA”

    Normally, contractors are subject to the same rules of conduct and scrutiny as the entity contracted to.

  11. Not when it comes to firing dingalings. No civil service protection.

  12. So if that had been done by a federal employee, most likely a suspension? Or not even that?

    Colonel Haiku (2601c0)

  13. The result might have been the same, but the procedure would been a lot more complex and dragged out a lot longer. Thanks, TR!

  14. Hope no one minds me posting this here but it’s an even better example of a news article about nothing:
