I unplugged and TSA could not believe it

Real Estate Agent with RETIRED 200305001

I just returned from a Mexico vacation. As I was going thru the TSA shake down they were worried about the Samsung "bad" phones. Paranoid would be a better description.

I was asked "where is your cell phone"? "At home, I'm on vacation". The most puzzled look and then "Good for you"!

Congratulations on doing that - not sure I could. You'll be happy to get home to your exploding phone I bet!
