Is there anything better than a Monday morning mansplain that I can leave my shoes (that alarm) on in pre-check? 🤗 Yes, I travel in heels and no, I don’t slow the line down by removing them!

Always never got a convincing definition of mansplaining - sorry but if the roles were reversed in this situation I’d just think a nice lady was trying to save me some trouble

And all in the definitions or examples I get that are close to convincing, the male was just being a dick and acting accordingly, and it had nothing to do with the intrinsic nature of a male-female interaction

Passenger behind me - not TSA. TSA knows heels alarm and therefore would never tell me to keep them on in the metal detector.

I feel you. While I know they are just trying to be helpful, it is frustrating as hell to be told something you already know every week as if you don’t. And always from a random man, not TSA.

Ironic, I had a woman explain to me thatI didn’t need to remove my laptop from the bag in precheck, and I kindly explained (or hell, maybe I mansplained), I had two laptops. People need to give this crap a rest.

Honest question - is there a reason you would need to remove heels to go through the scanner where you can leave any other shoe on?

More specifically- a lot of them have metal in the base/heel to support the structure
