Nu, it does make sense, but...
Then one time I was checked at the security to the Jerusalem Central Bus Station aka CBS.
"Lady, is that a knife in your bag?"So I passed the very heavy bag, full of books, back through the machine again. The inspector peered at the screen.
"No, it's a fork and a spoon."
"Are you sure?"
"We'll have to run it through the x-ray again."
"Lady, unpack your bag so I can see what you have."
So, I unpacked and showed her the fork and spoon.
"OK, you can go now."
And to show her that I wasn't angry, I thanked her, really, for doing her job the right way. Thank G-d I had time. Sometimes I don't have a spare second before catching my bus.
ps the following week I took the train in the other direction from the shuk (Machane Yehuda) and caught my bus at a regular bus stop, since I hadn't taken along plastic utensils.
