When I got to California, I discovered I had a couple of forks in my purse (I had brought them home from work to wash them, then tossed them in my purse to take back). I put them in my checked bag for the return trip.
I only discovered this morning while rummaging around for my keys on the way to shuttle parking that a steak knife was in there, too. It had slipped through two security scans.
Gee, I'm glad I didn't have to deal with whatever hassle might have ensued had airport security found it. But it doesn't say much for air safety now, does it?
