Going to a concert tomorrow night. Can't wait to try and get in only to have some dude pat me down. Do i say " It's a bag of crap, why do you ask".  Or " i like to wrap myself in plasic under my clothes". Or go with my friends " had to relocate my penis, and you just fondled me".
 
Red Sox win the Series.  Hours later my car was broken into. I don't see any connection as of yet. And the door was unlocked, so there really wasn't any breaking. But see, this is all better than when i get my ass taken out!!

Slice,
I wouldn't worry about the pre-concert frisking! They're going to be feeling for something hard, like a weapon, and as we all know, nothing hard comes out of an ileo!!

Sorry to hear about your car being broken into. sad Isn't that just the way life is sometimes? You're happy about one thing (like the Rex Sox winning) and then something bad happens to bring you down off of your happy high.

I like what Summer has to say... now you'll have more time to chat since your car is smashed up and the Red Sox are finished playing for a while! tongue

Slice,

This just happended to me! I went to have lunch with my hubby and I was on my way up to his office. His office is in the same building as the county court house so I had to go through the metal detectors. I was wearing tight pants and a tank b/c I had just come from the gym. For some reason, I set off the alarm when I went under the detector. I did not have anything on me..no keys, no wire bra..nothing. So, the man started to pat me down. UGGGHHH! He said, "what is this thing on your right side?" and he pointed to my bag. By this time, there was a line of people behind me and I wanted to crawl under a rock and hide. We never figured out what set off the alarm. The best thing I could come up with was the metal detector machine was celebrating over my Gator's hat...GO GATORS!

I'm expecting everyone in the area today will or might be shattered anyway. Big World Series party not far from the Gahden. I should be able to walk right in without some dude feeling my stuff.

I got "felt up" going into a Niners game. The lady frisking me definitely felt it, but she didn't say anything, probably because it's soft, and not hard like a beer bottle or a gun or whatever it is they're looking for! My husband was bummed, he thought he could use me to sneak in beers, but nope, I still get groped.

I have to admit, I wanted the Rockies to win. One of the kids on the team went to the High School I work for. tongue

I've been to a few outtings which require the ol' pat down and no one's mentioned it. They did not even touch it. I would pay attention to how each person frisks and chose the one that is the least thorough. However, I have noticed they frisk the men more aggressively than the women.

Worried about nothing.

GREAT!!! Wasn't expecting much from David Lee Roth. But i've always been a huge VH fan so we had to go. Gotta admit, i was shocked. Put on a great show. Had a great time. Not thrilled with using public bathrooms with a bunch of other drunks, but it's a small price to pay for a great show.
Next time i won't worry about the security.
The atmosphere alone was incredible. People up for VH and people just leaving the Red Sox rally down the street. Perfect.

How fun! My husband and I took a trip to Boston to see Fenway in 2000. It was so much fun just hanging around the ball park. We saw Ryne Sandberg in a souvnier shop!! We went to three games, it was a blast.

I must admit that your post made me laugh out loud, you're funny! 
 
But then I was once again hit with the realization of "le bag" and how it set's us so apart from everyone else---who have not a care in the world as to emptying their bowels. 
 
I was taken into the frisking room at the SLC airport on my way home from ileostomy surgery.  It was by far the worst day of my life.  They wanted to frisk me, I refused, they insisted, I told them where exactly they could go, they threatened to throw me out of the airport, called security, and I was then ordered to show them what I had in my pants. I threw them down and asked them if they were 100% satisfied.  Nice. I haven't flown since, but I realize this was probably not the norm for traveling circumstances.  I hadn't ever considered concerts.  Anyone else have experience with the pat down?  What the hell are we supposed to do?

Wow, Crohned, you gave everyone a show. I'll bet they talked about that for a long time. I actually have flown many times over the years and have been lucky, have never been patted down. I actually have a whole dialogue going in my head if they ever do decide to pat me down. It makes for fun 'killing time" during boring lectures at school.

LOL. It was Maroon 5 - I was taking my little sister. :) It wasn't actually that bad of a show. And not only did they not pat me down, they didn't even use those metal detector wand thingys. They barely looked in my purse. I coulda snuck an entire 6 six pack and a whole arsenal in there if I had wanted to. Now, I didn't want to, but it could have been done.

Amey...what a nightmare.....for something like that all i can say is, try and remember:

Rule No. 1 - dont' sweat the small stuff

Rule No.2 - it's all small stuff

Crohned - what an even bigger nightmare!


i actually read about someone with a seton (for an anal fistula) getting strip searched in an airport. The security guard was thrown off by the seton (a string that is tied in/out of a fistula, and the rectum) The airport doctor was summonned and he had no idea what it was. Apparently, no one at the airport believed the guy and they pulled, fairly hard, on the seton. The man later needed general anethesia to have the seton replaced. Imagine that horror!

I would totally be saying "Hey! don't tase me bro!"

i got frisked a couple weeks ago at the airport. i told the guy before he started feeling me up about it, he wanted to know what went in it, so i said "poo," and that was the end of it...i think he was intimidated. i have to say though, pretty LAX. i could have had explosives in there or something and no one would have been the wiser! (not that i'm about to try that haha)

my brother and I were talking about potential halloween costumes the other day. I suggested i go without a shirt and I would be "that guy with the weird bag of sh@t on his waste"

he one up'd me though, and said, no, I should wear a plain tshirt with a whole cut out for the pouch, on the tshirt, you write something like, "hey! stop staring at my sh@t bag!" or, "I'm sorry, does this make you feel uncomfortable?"

i wimped out this year, but next Halloween, i might just try it.

Glad's on to something. But instead of just one person going around during halloween
as the "bag man". it should be like, 20 people, all with bags stuck on them. Some sort
of Ostomy gang. Throwing wafers like frisbries. Tossing paste balls.

I need sleep
