To start off for anyone who is reading this it may be hard to follow. The reason why this may be is because I am in a mental fog state having had two non D seizures yesterday. I just needed to vent and had no place to do it but here where people would understand.

 

So I was flying to CA from Chicago over the weekend and I was subjected to a secondary screening at the security checkpoint because my MM pump set off the alarm. So I am like ok more screening. I was okay with that. But what gets me is that they don't listen. I was told 5 times to give them my pump because I could not take it on the flight with me. I was like wtf are you joking. Needless to say I missed my flight. On top of some other things that happened that should not have.

 

I was wondering have anyone else have this happen to them?

It sounds like a combination of things went against you; uneducated TSA agent, crowds, beeping pump, need to access carry-on bag ASAP, on the cell phone, etc. 'Noise' will make anyone responsible for safety nervous and if the agent was not well trained that will make it even more problematic.

If it will make you feel better about the experience and you know the name/ID of the TSA agent then I would file a complaint. If you don't know who searched you then it is of little use, IMO.
