    Doesn't look like a 55yr old to me. Boarding agents were sloppy.

    Yeah for sure. The mask looks at least 85 years old.

    Sometimes the agents can be sloppy, particularly the ones checking your passport/boarding pass as you go through the gate. I imagine after waving through hundreds of passengers every day, it gets to be kind of automatic...

    I was travelling with a friend of mine and at one point the officers took both our passports, checked us over, then gave us our passports back. What we didn't realize at the time was that we were now holding each other's passports.

    At the next checkpoint, my friend presented my passport, and was waved right through. I was behind him, opened up the passport I was carrying, and called him back over as soon as I saw that I had the wrong one. But the agent had never noticed...

    Keep in mind, I'm Asian, was in my 20's at the time, and my friend is a late-40's Caucasian.

    I guess new TSA regulation will require everyone's face tugged then slashed with a knife to confirm it is indeed your face.

    Sometimes I wonder.
