So much for secure flights

Sitting 2 rows in front of me on the flight to Tampa, FL from Santa Barbara, CA, is a man I was behind in both the checkin line and the security line. He spent about 5 minutes at the checkin counter searching through his bags. He didn’t have any photo id with him.
He was checked in, but the ticket agent warned him that he might have problems at security. His bag was sent to security for screening. I was again behind him as we approached the counter where they check ID and boarding passes. He explained to the TSA agent that he didn’t have any photo ID with him, but he did have his checkbook. He was pulled to the side and a supervisor was called. I proceeded through security with no problems.
When I boarded, he was already in his seat. So much for knowing exactly who is flying. What a joke airport security is. 🙁
