Love them or hate them, the TSA has an amazing Instagram page

Here in the USA (and I’m assuming also among those from other places who have traveled to the USA as well), the TSA has a bit of a reputation for being a disagreeable bunch. Supporters tout their necessity and how they help keep us safe, but the rest of us just feel a little dehumanized when shuffled through airport security while we’re poked, prodded, and questioned on the contents of our snack bags.

Love them or hate them, however, there is one thing that’s indisputable…the TSA’s social media team is top notch!

If you haven’t had the chance to check out their Instagram page yet, you’ll be surprised by how…well…delightful it is.

So, without further adieu, I give you a selection of TSA Instagram posts that made me smile.

Congratulations to the Philadelphia Eagles! As a special TSA Instagram bonus, here’s a picture of Challenger the eagle with Pittsburgh TSA Officer Joseph Sutton in 2014.
