Here's my experience.

Peach Arch Border

My experience with the peace arch border patrol - homeland security has been pleasant thus far. You need to be able to present yourself in a pleasant and professional manner and address and answer their questions with honesty in a stern and serious tone.

If you are rolling up in a car that looks like something you don't own or afford, your sunglasses on, music pumped up, no eye contact and at least a half sincere greeting to border officer you're gonna get their cockbuster cocky attitude. Your first impression and your first words count and it's what the office will based his attitude towards you on.

Bellingham Airport - TSA
Guys are pretty friendly there, signs everywhere telling you what to do. Area is small but the service is quick and efficient. No complains.

Las Vegas Airport - TSA travelling back to Vancouver
Since it's Las Vegas obviously there will be a lot of traffic. I find that the TSA staff there does not know how to direct traffic. You have this long barricade area where everyone goes and it eventually snakes off to 6 separate lines but it takes forever to get to that area.

Staff there are generally pushy and has the attitude that they don't want to be fucking there.

Generally if you present yourself in a friendly, honest, serious and stern manner and leave the cocky attitude at the door and don't put up much resistance or try and argue every single thing you usually get the better attitude and service from the security staff.

ive had issues with rudeness every single time i fly, both with american and canadian agents. except in bellingham and utah. ive also never got anything remotely rude from international agents. im sorry but unless its a small town, its an american and canadian thing not a culture thing
Nope.. I may be young but i'm well seasoned with travelling. (but i guess that's partially true... haven't been in an american airport for quite a bit now)
To be honest I've probably spent more time on an airplane then you have taking a dump this year.
(depending on how long your dumps are of course...)
