Add Sydney Airport security to Death & Taxes

Any aspirations working for organizations that support mayhem and chaos are off the list. Sydney Airport must be telling me I have no chance for that line of vocation. A 100% ETD screening record at Sydney Airport in the last 20 trips. I am constantly told it is random but if I could score 100% on every other ‘indiscriminate’ event – investments, love or lottery tickets – wouldn’t life be simple? I do note that I had the option to decline. When he offered an explanation of how I was selected I thought, “why not, I’ll hear him out?” – “Sir, we are trained extensively to profile people at random” That settles it then. Since when did ‘profiling’ and ‘random’ become mutually inclusive? Or do I just need to face the fact that I must look shady? It is 6am afterall.
