Airport security extremes

I have no idea what they teach at the School for the Prevention of an Incident on an Aircraft but one thing for certain is airport security measures continue to spring new surprises every day.

At Mwanza Airport today I was asked to surrender two triple "A" batteries from my Sony radio. Actually, I volunteered to surrender them. Alerted by his colleague manning the X-ray machine, the security officer asked me: "You have a radio with batteries?" I asked: "Do you want them?" He said: Yes. I gave them to him and he gave me a reason to complain here.

Me? Blow up a plane in which I am also a passenger? They just don't know me.
