Recently at Eindhoven airport my son’s (9) transparent blue pistol – that shoots out pingpong balls – got confiscated (together with ammunition) as ‘object prone for threats’.
The attached photo demonstrates the incriminated weapon, together with the utmost radical and violent (now however a little droopy) underaged international terrorist.
For me, a lawyer, it is also a heartwarming experience whenever we obey not only the letter, but also the spirit of the law, as I am convinced that thanks to the vigilance of the security personnel, after these measures all passengers could proceed to their destinations with a considerably higher level of safety.
But hey, 1-2 chopped-off fingers, what’s that? A very tiny sacrifice – health is more important.
Just seen this photo on the internet.
I asked my family members to interpret the picture:
My older child (13 – a Generation Z teenager..): “The 2 birds are fighting for food!”
Then I asked her little brother (9): “They are sharing food/ feeding each other..”.
Asked myself, a lawyer: “It’s what we call a ‘joint possession’..”
Asked my husband, an engineer: “The fish is too big, the birds are trying to cut it into two.”
Whatever the interpretation is, it would most probably not be the right moment to run a satisfaction survey on the fish, as the client.
Before going on a trip I always check the travel reviews.
