Staff at a certain South American airline are clearly oblivious to the modern world of security. It’s not that their country is remote from revolution and regular changes of government!
At this airline’s head office the main entranceway has an individual card reader activated door release.
Fine you might say.
Well it would be fine if it was not for a spare reader actually left dangling on the door.
All that people entering the office have to do pick it up, pass it over the pad and they are in. Anyone can do this, including your observant scribe, ready for an appointment with a senior executive. Whilst waiting he thought he might send an email and just popped on to the nearest computer.
Can we point out that airport security in the country in question seems fine.
