I have just returned home from vacation and have a new rant to add on airports. This one isn't the airlines - but the PEOPLE at the airport.

The kids and I were at the gate, waiting for our time to board. My husband had run back to the car to grab my briefcase. He went through the security checkpoint and my briefcase was picked up by someone else.

By rummaging through the other guys briefcase, we found him and got mine back. The thing that bugs me is he acted like it was no big deal and he didn't even notice that he had the wrong briefcase!!! Mine had a shoulder strap and was much heavier than his.

You always hear about this happening, but never expect it to happen to you. I know we'll be a lot more careful going through the checkpoints - but it really bugs me that people don't take 2 seconds to make sure they have the right bags!!
