Posted on 11/21/2010 3:16:48 PM PST by Citizen X_Area 51
Anyone who has visited a fast food joint, a doctors office or a hospital has watched as workers change gloves between servings or exams. And if they dont, the customer/patient would surely say something.
How often do the TSA agents doing the enhanced pat-downs change gloves? And would most cowed flyers who just want to make it through security and advance to their gate ask them to do so? Or would passengers fear that such a request would invite more enhanced scrutiny?

And don't forget the potential to pass infections, std's, crabs, etc. from one person to another.
Insist they change gloves!
Yeah, shoot me with a clean bullet.
That'll really show 'em! Maybe you can bring some new gloves for them to wear when they feel you up.
Ever think about the coats, sweaters and pocket items you plop into the the box that have had hundreds of shoes in them earlier?
“I got an STD from the TSA!”
Our son had participated in the work-study program in high school as an assistant in one of the local emergency rooms. He graduated, entered UNM studying Biology with the intent of becoming a doctor. He continued at the emergency room advancing to a tech when he realized he had the allergic reaction to the latex gloves. It was devastating. He had an awful rash and had to change majors and career paths.
So the allergy does exist and is very potent.
Not only should they change gloves for every traveler but they had better not be latex. There are millions of people who are allergic to latex.
I didn’t even think about that, or the fact that some people are highly allergic to latex.
Are you saying you don’t want to share someone elses skin problems? Shame on you. I’m more worried about the skin cancer those machines could cause. If the operator wants to see more, they just have to crank up the radiation level.
Heh, heh, heh... Those traveling on “Opt-out” day should not only insist on a fresh pair of gloves, but insist that the TSA perv put them on in front of the traveler. That’ll toss another nice monkey wrench into the works.
My SIL who is RN and my Wife’s aunt both have severe latex allergies.
There are alternatives but, way too many latex parts in medical products.
The reaction gets more serious over the years. Even several years without contact, the allergic reaction can progress.
Several food allergies accompany latex allergy: Kiwi, avocado, and bananas. I didn’t realize that until it happened to me. You might want to let your son know.
Heh, heh, heh...I like your creative thinking!
I don't fly anywhere. Moot point.
The state of the gloves would not be a key element to me though.
Does it matter more about the gloves or the fact that you'll be felt up?
