Went to run a few items to the post office. Now, the post office in Sacramento is in the federal building, mere feet from the security guards manning the metal detector.
They wouldn’t let me take the knife in. I guess I could use it to go postal on the postal employees, but why? Hell, my keys (which I am allowed to take in the federal building) would probably do more damage.
So I had to put it outside. Also, their metal detector is sensitive enough to detect glasses. Meh.
Security theatre sucks, as does paranoia.
