    The only time that I had felt pressurised at an immigration checkpoint was in Ben Gurion Airport, I was asked closed to dozens of really personal questions (approximately ~ 30 to 40 of them) and it was so hard to maintain a calm composure and not be nervous even the slightest bit. I had thought that at any moment a group of Magav soldiers is going to come out of nowhere and drag me somewhere for interrogation.

    Oh, when they search you, they really frisk you hard...

    We are a jolly bunch of hoilday makers who are there to have fun.

    We are there not to attend a funeral.

    Those that can't stand noises shouldn't work in an immigration check point.

    How could you people from this tiny red dot enjoying and making so much noise while we world 3rd largest population in the world serve you? Is this quite similar in situation when you travel to Europe but they did it in a more civilized way? Today $ talks.

    Well, with hijack and other incidents there in the past, the security should be air tight.

    Pretty or otherwise is subjective but I observed they do have plenty of twenty-ish years old uniformed XMMs roaming around, I reckon they are conscripts.

    Really courteous and polite behind their demure appearances, you can try flirting with them whenever you are there. Who knows..., you may receive the full dose of unbeknownst guest treatments in an enclosed office where no one can hear you scream later on.

    Yeah, do the moan a-la Japanese Hard Gay (Masaki Sumitani). That should be fun.

    actually any other Custom/Immigration hall, you are expected to lower your voice. I was at Perth last year, it was like dead silence. or maybe everyone is just so tired. lolll

    No, there are many friendly custom officers. I have encountered them in many countries in Asia. Ok, a smile is more common in PH than in VN. Believe it or not: when my friends from Germany came to SG the first thing they noticed was the smile they are greeted with at airport immigration. When I go back to Germany for visits I notice the opposite: the rather grumpy looking face of a German immigration officer at 6am ... It becomes more obvious when coming from Asia.
    Beside this: let's not forget the purpose of all custom officers. Engaging in chit-chat might sound nice but it is also a form of distraction, often abused by those who have to hide something. The situation that this whining boy describes at TRS is perfectly normal and should not upset anybody. Normal practice to ask a few sharp questions. Do this whining at the US immigration counter and you can straight away board the flight back home. Don't forget: you are entering a foreign country and asking for a permit to visit. Nothing else.
