Right. Let's keep in mind the guy with the shoes didn't start the issue. He's taking his shoes off because he knows he will have to. This makes everyone's day smoother. He's not trying to be elitist, or say anything about the quality of his shoes. The TSA "agent" is blowing up because he's spotted what he thinks is another out of touch traveler that must be put in line. Let's assume it's the not the first day on the job for the aforementioned "agent". Can we then also assume he hasn't seen at least one other Pre-check person's shoes trip the metal detector before? Why is he then basically antagonizing himself? Because he sucks at his job.
This. I'm not going to antagonize anybody. I'm also not going to put up with being bullied by anyone and that includes TSA.
