I'm 28, clean cut, my tattoos aren't visible, and have no criminal record/history of arrests, and you will just have to take my word I am on the polite side of the spectrum, as I was raised by my grandparents and would get my ass whupped if I wasn't. I'd say over 20 crosses across that border I have been sent in every single time. They scratched the shit out of my windows and destroyed the tint on my gti, have left my car in shambles, been rude and obnoxious. Done personal searches on me when nothing has been found in my car. Fuck those assholes.
I remember one specific line that made my head explode.
Border guard. "where are you guys heading today"
Me "mount baker to go snowboarding"
Border guard " You mean you'd LIKE TO GO TO MOUNT BAKER TO SNOWBOARD"
Border guard "WHY DONT YOU JUST GO TO WHISTLER"
Me "There was a big storm at Baker. Lots more snow"
Border guard "Park your car to the left and head inside"
Like what the fuck is the point of trying to bait me into saying something that is going to just piss him off like that when its an honest normal answer to his question.
from the sounds of this story... you were dealing with US border guards and not Canada border guards.
