This is the Way to Bring About Change


Here’s a guy who gets it:

Fed up with what he views as crappy treatment from the TSA, the owner of a restaurant near Seattle-Tacoma International Airport has decided to put all TSA agents on his No-Eat List.

“We have posted signs on our doors basically saying that they aren’t allowed to come into our business,” one employee tells travel journalist Christopher Elliott. “We have the right to refuse service to anyone.”

She says that whenever a TSA agent attempts to dine at the restaurant, “we turn our backs and completely ignore them, and tell them to leave… Their kind aren’t welcomed in our establishment.”

The restaurant claims that 90% of its patrons are in agreement with their stance and that the local police have actually helped escort TSA workers off the premises.

“Until TSA agents start treating us with the respect and dignity that we deserve, then things will change for them in the private sector,” says the employee.

  1. Sadly, it might be a hoax: http://www.elliott.org/blog/wheres-the-cafe-that-refuses-to-serve-the-tsa/

    • I hope not, but the idea is still sound.

  2. When I flew out of Spokane last fall, the TSA folks there were so nice I actually went to the desk and complimented them. (Well, I happened to be next to the desk to put my shoes back on).

    They were thrilled, because all they ever hear is complaints, and it’s not like they exactly enjoy what they’re instructed to do, but they need jobs too.

    It was kinda cool to get that perspective that the grunts don’t agree with the brass either! Now if only the other airports could learn from GEG about courtesy and politeness…
