I flew on United out of Newark yesterday. When I got to to the Security check and realized that they wanted me to go through the full body scan, I said no, because of my pump. An agent was standing in the metal detector, and was forcing people to go through the scanner. I repeated that I did not want to go through the scanner and was told by several different people that it was exactly the same as the detector, and if I could go through one, I could go through the other. I had to be quite forceful about it. These people were just repeating the same comment over and over. Too bad they had no idea what they were trying to do to my pump!
The young lady who did my pat down was a bit upset that I insisted on it. If I didn't have all of you, I might not have been so strong. THANK YOU!
