I'm so with you. Any time I get to the airport with time to kill, I decline to take off my shoes. Sure - it is a pain in the ass for them, but if it makes this ridiculous process more obvious I'm all for it.

The last time at SFO the screener said, "you have to take off your shoes." I said no I didn't - TSA policy specifically allows me to leave my shoes on and then you are to do a wand and swipe. Can I speak to your supervisor?

oops - apparently the times they are a changin...

Here's my beef about the shoe thing: I wear orthotics, aka a prescription medical device that isn't sold by Dr. Scholl's and makes it a huge pain in the ass to take off my shoes. According to the TSA's web site:

"Security Officers should not be asking you to remove your orthopedic shoes, appliances, or medical device (insulin pump, feeding tube, ostomy or urine bag, or exterior component of cochlear implant) at any time during the screening process." (http://www.tsa.gov/travelers/airtravel/specialneeds/editorial_1370.shtm#3).

Yeah. Guess who's had to take off their shoes containing a medical device every fucking time he's flown in the last six years?
