The Seduction, Part Two

The word of the day: Anticipointment.

News update: Wal-Mart has a change of heart.

It now appears that that Wal-Mart has had a rebirth, and will do the right thing (but for all the wrong reasons). In a letter released on Monday, Wal-Mart Executive Vice President Pat Curran said "Occasionally, others help us step back and look at a situation in a different way. This is one of those times," We have all been moved by Ms. Shank's extraordinary situation."

No, they were moved by the negative PR they were getting after the story was released.

Now for today's story:

As you walk toward them you notice something different; a complete change in the atmosphere. There is soft music somewhere in the background and you almost get a romantic feeling. You look around and you notice the lights have dimmed, as soft as the music and you can feel the stress flying away. You are relaxed and ready for the experience and you have been completely seduced by the folks that will not allow you to take a bottle of water passed the check point and who have molested and embarrassed everyone from 1 to 101 years of age. You have entered the TSA zone and like everyone else entering there, you are a terrorist suspect.

The only difference now, is they want you to feel comfortable while you are being molested. Don't be fooled by the soft lights and music, there is someone in another room watching your full body scan, just waiting to pull you aside so they can personally inspect your labia ring and to show the pictures of the scans to their friends and co-workers. And don't let your guard down, remember that romantic feeling? The minute you think all is well, someone with a friendly smile from the TSA will teach you all about romance and the new and improved TSA.

Anticipointment is a very appropriate word.
