Boing Boing: My life on the road: A lost passport, no ID, and bullshit paperwork trying to get back to Canada

Boing Boing:

In the hotel's front door to the hotel's front desk. I have my luggage. I have a reservation. I have a credit card for incidentals.

I do not have a passport.

I don’t want to say this is hilarious, because of the crap this guy had to go through.

However…the Rube Goldberg machine of bull at O’Hare trying to go back home is exactly the kind of incompetence we know exists at US airports but don’t like to admit.

Security theater at it’s finest.
