As it is said "Payback is a Bitch" as the TSA is finding out

There might not be much you can do about rude or dismissive TSA agents on their home turf (i.e. the airport), but one Seattle restaurant has managed a little payback away from the terminal.

The Consumerist is reporting that the owner of a restaurant near the Seattle-Tacoma International Airport has implemented an official ban on all TSA agents. Noting that they have the right to deny service to anyone, one employee says, "we have posted signs on our doors basically saying that they aren't allowed to come into our business." What if a persistent (and hungry) agent ignores the sign? The staff ignores them until they give up and leave. Ouch!

Restaurant workers say that the majority of their customers agree with the policy and that they are simply giving the agents a taste of their own medicine.

"Until TSA agents start treating us with the respect and dignity that we deserve, then things will change for them in the private sector," says the employee.
