British Security Minister Baroness Neville-Jones got ticked off when security personnel failed to recognize her and, instead, stopped her from bringing a banned amount of liquid onto a plane.
The 71-year-old, known for being haughty, took offence when she was reminded on just how important security is. "Of course I know how important it is," she ranted, "I'm the Security Minister!"
Ironically, the Baroness was en route to a Washington summit to discuss the war on terror with US security chiefs.
