I see this a fair amount at security depending upon the airport with the line cutting of “I am going to work”, hey buddy so am I. JFK finally put up some signs that everyone stands in line. Saves me having to shoulder block the unworthy.

So now we go from children to police officers. Why can't it just be what it was? Do you really think it would be better if I had stepped up to a complete stranger, who happens to also be in uniform, and started arguing with him in front of dozens of passengers? And you are comparing that to my responsibility to teach my child?

How would you expect someone being that rude to react to a lecture? Would you want the public to see that reaction?

The KCM line? Wow, I've never seen that before.

Not all airports have KCM and it isn’t always opened.

Wow, you must be the Delta Captain he was talking about. Surprised to see your actions posted on this board? ohh yeah, this thread is called "Tool of the Day" which is exactly what you were at the coffee stand and worthy of a post in this thread. That was the point of his original post. You are also a tool in this thread.

Isn’t open 24x7 at JFK, though for most part not an issue with US crews. I will destroy your stuff if you try to put it in front of me on the conveyor. XXXOOO.

The first thing I noticed about this response is how pointless it is. Then I noticed that you failed to answer any of my questions. Hopefully that means you now understand that creating public disturbances between people in uniform just so you can sound cool and tough on the internet isn't the best way to handle unfortunate situations like this.

You like analogies so here's one. You are deadheading and the passenger in front of you passes wind. Do you:
A. Hold your breath.
B. "Oh my gawd why are you farting! You owe everyone here an apology!"

Sometimes it is best to just let the wind blow.
