For your safety

Fact: I always carry pepper spray with me.
When we went to New York for a long Memorial Day weekend, I somehow forgot to remove it. Officially you can put it in your checked baggage, but we didn’t check bags.
I didn’t realize that I even had it with me until we repacked for our flight out of Newark. Oops. I guess I could have just checked the bag, but everyone who’s ever flown into ATL knows that equates another hour of standing around and waiting, on top of the stupid $15 Delta fee. Fuck that.
I smoothly and easily sailed through ATL’s airport security a contraband item, but I assume anything and everything is stupid in Atlanta and I was going to get caught here. So there I was, freaking out in the security line and finally just threw it away. Damn it.
Next time I’m “unknowingly” going to bring my 4(!) oz. container of lens solution. Take that!
