Does it seem like people actively look for things to complain about/get offended by now?
this morning i dropped off mrs and baby carl669 at the airport. i went inside with her to help get the bag and car seat checked and to help her get organized before going through security. because it was the first time either of us had traveled with the baby, i hung around and watched while she was going through.
while waiting, one of the TSA folks came up and said 'namaste'. so, i said it back and the common thing to do when saying it is to place your hands together and give a little bow. he kind of chuckled and said, 'i can't actually do the hand gesture part or i might get in trouble.' of course, i wanted to know why.
