(User Submitted) – In a cafe near the Seattle-Tacoma International Airport, a small piece of retribution is being dealt back to the TSA. "We have posted signs on our doors basically saying that they aren't allowed to come into our business," an employee tells travel journalist Christopher Elliott, adding that her boss travels a lot and often recognizes TSA agents. If he sees one in the café, located near the airport, "we turn our backs and completely ignore them, and tell them to leave,” she says. “Their kind aren't welcomed in our establishment."

"Until TSA agents start treating us with the respect and dignity that we deserve, then things will change for them in the private sector," she says. (Read more TSA stories.)
