AND FINALLY: Problems at immigration

Readers may be aware that the UK immigration authorities have introduced a biometric lane in the immigration area of certain airports.

Passengers are asked to remove their glasses in order for an image to be made as per the photo in the passport.  You are expected to follow simple instructions.

The difficulty for the short-sighted is that with one’s glasses removed it is impossible to actually read the commands. 

PS.  No saving of staff.  Each point was manned!
