There was a queue at the metal detector at Bristol Airport last night, which gave me a chance to notice an ‘internal’ poster which gives guidelines for the security staff. It described the various numbered stickers which check-in staff can apparently add to your boarding card. Some were pretty innocent, like “7 – has hearing difficulties”.
But more amusing was “4 – person has made light of security questions or actions”. The required follow-up procedure, according to the poster, was “full baggage and body search”.
Moral of the story: If you make jokes at check-in, you’ll regret it!
