TSA folks were horrible!

Feb 14, 2018

Although my checked bag was cleared in memphis, it was not on the conveyor belt. I had to go to customer service to locate the whereabouts of my bag and to get it, which cost me to lose an additional hour: The flight was already about 25 minutes late. I missed an event. because of the time lost.
