Who'd have thunk it?

So, THAT'S what happens to all of your stuff when it's permanently lost by airlines! They freakin' hold onto it, then SELL IT! Since American Airlines lost my bag on the way to my vacation in February, I've been overly interested in what happens to the lost/missing bags. I finally have my answer! Here's an article from Budget Travel about how and where you can buy "leftover loot" from the TSA. Ok, so it's mostly stuff confinscated by the TSA, but still. After reading it, I discovered the Oregon State Surplus site, as well as the Oregon State eBay store.

And, just to keep me entertained, I read this article called "Confessions of a Baggage Handler." I blame miscommunication and stupid American Airlines for the "misplacement" of our bags. Yeah, for seven weeks? Suck it.

I shake my fist at you, baggage handlers and TSA!
