Cell Phone and Security WTF?

I had an errand to run at the county courthouse today. I left my cell phone in the car because a big red sign out front says, NO CELL PHONES WITH CAMERAS ALLOWED INSIDE.

I went through the perfunctory security check and went down to the clerk's office.  Three people ahead of me in line, and the four people who were at the counter already were all apparently engaged in extremely complicated matters that required piles of documents three feet high.  One woman had a filing box with her.

This, I mused with annoyance, would be the perfect time to read on my Kindle app, but my phone was in the damn car because of the stupid security.

And then the woman in line behind me pulls out her smart phone and makes a call.  And a guy in a suit walks past the line checking text messages on his phone.  And a mom hands her young son a smart phone so he can fiddle with it while they're waiting in line.  WTF?  So the Big Red Sign is meaningless, apparently.

By time one of the four people at the counter got their shit done, twenty minutes had passed, and those four they had already been there by the time I arrived!  And when the first clerk finished with the filing box lady, she walked away from her desk and disappeared, leaving the line unbudged and the counter now staffed with three people.

Seriously.  It's a good thing security was so tight, or one of the dozen people in line woudl probably have shot someone.

Too bad someone didn't take video of the breaches of security and the workers' lazy attitudes.
