I'm falling asleep at my desk because after packing for the past two days, we moved all of our this-side-of-the-worldly belongings into the new apartment over three hours this morning. For dinner, I wanted Cosi, because they serve coffee instead of just Nescafe like every traditional restaurant in the area (does Islam frown on caffeine too?) But upon calling, I'm kindly informed that "we don't deliver today." Huh? That's not even comprehensible to me.

Also, the abominable security woman at the front desk made me put my purse through the X-ray machine again today, after laying off a couple weeks into our starting work. It's not the time but the principle of the thing - what reason would I possibly have to jeopardize my job? Why haven't I done it, say, before the launch of the paper if sabotage was my intention? If she does it again I'm pitching a fit. Grr!

She probably got yelled at when someone found out that she wasn't testing everyone. Or there is a policy of spot-checking, where it just isn't feasible to always check everybody, so you randomly check a couple of people each day, similar to customs checks at the airport.

Oh sure, be reasonable about it. It's just demeaning, that the people who work here would want to undermine the place.

Where do you thing the words infiltration, and working within the system come from?

I've done security as part of my stint as Military Police (drafted). We would always pick someone at random at the busiest time. That way people noticed that searches happened, and were less annoyed when it was 'their turn'. Also, it's a form of politeness towards visitors who you do have to search. By making a show of searching personnel as well, you show that it's normal, and thus not a big deal©.
Also, it's important that every group is included in this. You don't want to give the suggestion that one group is more likely to be searched than another.
