I've transited through before, but this was a perfect storm of four flights arriving and utter fucking chaos. People jumping immigration cues and the agents shrugging their shoulders. The worst part was the few thousand people who then had to collect luggage and filter through five customs guys who are also checking ID's. Are you fucking kidding me? We were just cleared by immigration and at least half of us are now missing connecting flights and you're checking the previous guys work? These guys made the TSA seem like miracle workers.

 

Naturally we missed our connection and then hit the rebooking line which stretched the length of the terminal. Fuck that. My wife and I played good cop/bad cop - she called customer service and bitched while I jumped the line and sweet talked an agent and we were given the last two seats on the last flight to Kennedy though we were originally going to Laguardia. 

 

Talking to the agent he said that it was generally a nightmare. So much so the mayor and governor have gotten involved, but their pleas have fallen on deaf ears.

 

Never again will I fly through Miami.

I'm going to be polite about it this time, but this will be the last time. We're done talking about my son. Talk about my problem with what happened, and disagree with my annoyance over if if you'd like, but my son has been referenced for the last time.

And, just so there's no ambiguity, I'm saying this as a mod.

I didn't. My first reaction was to jump up and go WTF?, but my wife was there, too. She saw the whole thing start to finish (I only saw the pick-up/move), and told me what'd happened. By the time she was done explaining it, it'd given me (and my wife) a moment to get over the initial shock and realize there would be no use in making a stink about it.

I'm glad I didn't say anything, because there would have been no point other than to vent, which is why I posted it here. She didn't harm him or put him in harm's way, and I can't imagine dad losing it on some mommy who was "just trying to help your poor little child" would have come out in my favor. Still, not okay in the least.

They are probably under some kind of strict instruction because they never deviate from that process. Most customs agents at other airports will reduce the checks if volume if heavy, but MIA insists on interviewing everybody. It's infuriating too because obviously not everyone speaks English so listening to some of these conversations is maddening.

But to take the other side for a moment, given that MIA is the primary hub for South American entry, I can only imagine the shit that people try to bring through there

The guy who "interviewed" us was laughing and chatting with everyone. He knew he was slower than the other agents, but he didn't give a shit and seemed to enjoy fucking people over.

This lady in my office sneezes like 1000 times a day. I can tell if she would just blow her nose and stop sniffling she wouldn't sneeze. I just want to punch her in the face.
