(Totally Manufactured) TSA Conversation Overheard at DCA This A.M.

A friend of mine was waiting to go through a security checkpoint at National Airport this morning. My friend recognized the woman in front of him to be the daughter of a prominent U.S. senator. My friend swears to me he overheard the following shouting match between the senator's daughter and a TSA employee, who wanted the young woman to forfeit a tube of warming lubricant that, because of the international liquid-terror scare, is now a banned item.
TSA Guy (holding dog named "Precious"): Now it places the lotion in the basket.

Senator's Daughter: Please! Please I wanna go home! I wanna go home please!

TSA Guy (stroking Precious): It places the lotion in the basket.

Senator's Daughter: I wanna see my mommy! Please I wanna see my...

TSA Guy: Put the fucking lotion in the basket!
