That’s just plane ditzy!
A geographically-challenged airport security agent nearly turned away a woman with a valid Washington, DC identification card — because she had no clue where the District was, or that it’s just as legit as a state.
Ashley Brandt was traveling back from the Grand Canyon with her boyfriend a couple weeks ago, when a Transportation Security Administration officer in Phoenix took a look at her driver’s license — marked “District of Columbia” — and threatened not to take it, The Washington Post reported.
“I don’t know if we can accept these. Do you have a US passport?” the agent said, according to Brandt.
