A Craigslist ad apparently posted by the Transportation Security Administration in search of employees for Ann Arbor airport brags about the federal agency’s mission to create an “imperious” security team. The word “imperious” means “domineering in a haughty manner; dictatorial; overbearing.”
You’d think the posting was a joke if not for the fact that this perfectly describes the TSA’s role and how its employees behave on a routine basis.
As the Jalopnik blog points out, the ad was only posted in the Ann Arbor section, suggesting it is not a prank. The posting is poorly written, but that’s to be expected from a federal employee.
Imperious, domineering, dictatorial and overbearing are all very apt terms to describe the TSA, as is Google’s definition of the word ‘imperious’ – “assuming authority without justification.” Synonyms for ‘imperious’ include “tyrannical, despotic, arrogant,” – which are also perfectly illustrative of the federal agency.
