Went thru body scanner, metal detector and still got patted down?

Jump to last reply

Flying out of Boston/Logan Friday AM. Played all the right games - stood here, hands held here, etc. thru full body scanner. Then TSA person told me to "wait there" and told me I had been "selected" for pat down. I did not argue, just asked why - since I thought body scanner was substitute for that. She said "It is because you have a big necklace on" - which I did and which was plastic. Never asked me to take off necklace - next time I will.

Is there some rule I missed? Just curious - was not argumentative then and not trying to be now.
