"Here," dad to girl, "Get your ID out and have it with your ticket."

Dad: "How do you know she's a minor if you don't look at her ID?"

Dad again: "Kind of a hole in the system, isn't it?"

TSA Officer, voice lowered ... "There are a LOT of holes in the system, sir." ... walks away.

Young girl, "Good one, dad. Now tell her our name is LADEN and see what happens!"
