10 years ago meter maids were universally hated, there's a show on reality tv i watched last year, prolly still around meter maids? or towed or something oh just googled, it's parking wars, they have 3, 10 minute segments on meter maids, towing guyings, and the place where you get your car out of the impound.
ppl can yell, threated, curse at meter maids, and all they can do is take it and say good day sir/mam. But if you even try 10% of that with a TSA agent freely groping you around, you get something harsh.
A TSA agent groped my netbook, he was like "why do you have 2 laptops?" and i was like cuz i like having 2? then he swabbed the netbook all over for explosives and he turned it on and i had to tell him my boot up password, (i wasn't allowed to type it in myself) which was also a "red flag" because why would someone put a password on their netbook? good lord.
