dear mall entrance guard

I really wish you were more like the Buckingham Palace guard. If you don't even bother to direct your eyes to the insides of my bag, I wish you wouldn't poke it with that drumstick of yours. I willingly open my bag anyway to submit to these safety checks because I really prefer that there aren't any bombs or guns in people's bags at the mall. But if you won't check my bag anyway, please make like the Queen's Guard and keep your and your drumstick's movement to a minimum. After all, going through the motions of stirring the insides of my bag with your drumstick is more effective cooking chicken soup than conducting a proper safety check.
