Oh for goodness sake.
I know it is important and necessary that passengers' items be scrutinized before flights. I understand that fully. What I don't understand is how people aren't aware enough to realize that an important and costly item has been removed from their carry-on.
We lived in England for over two years. During that time we traveled internationally pretty frequently; often with five kids. Hubs and I are pretty self-aware and have taught our children to be also. I guess this post is to warn travelers to take nothing for granted. Be mindful of your belongings as you go through security check-points. Go through your carry-ons after they are returned to you.
