I travel a lot. I’m a mother first, but I’m a business woman second. I enjoy spending time with my family, and I do miss them when I travel. I really should stop travelling so much! Anyway – this post is supposed to be a rant on how I HATE finger scanners!
Every time I get off the plane, I have to get my finger scanned. This doesn’t sound like much of a problem, but the thing is, the machine ALWAYS gets it wrong. They mix me up with some one else EVERY time! It’s gotten so serious that I’m considering traveling by boat instead.
There is nothing more embarrasing than having your finger scanned, and then getting pulled to the side by the TSA or whatever you call it, for them to tell you that you are a wanted criminal. It’s routine at this point, I tell them that I’ve gone through this before, and then they make some calls, and then they give me the clear. The next time this happens, I’m just going to pretend to be a bad guy and scream at the top of my lungs. Or I will collapse on the floor and start crying. Who knows.
I did some research online and there is some really shoddy finger scanners out there!
I travel to China a lot, and I do get to see first hand with how they compromise quality for quantity, and a lot of these new finger scanners are made in China, so I’m pretty sure that might be the problem. I did some research online and I found a company called integrated biometrics. Their products seem really good, maybe I should scan my finger with one of their finger scanner. Honestly, if it works, I should just carry it around with me and tell the TSA guys to use my superior finger scanner instead of the crappy Chinese made ones.
Anyway, here’s the picture of the one I bought:
Pretty cool right? Sorry about the rant.
