Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Not that it has made any difference, but whenever I am going to the airport...and through all the checks, I expect the worse and try to be pleasant/non-reactive...and so far, I have always been treated respectfully and quickly.

Also, having been a manager in a Union shop for years, I developed a sense that not everyone (managers or staff) will like me, but nonetheless I would do my best to "kill them with kindness"! In a few cases, I actually won people over, the rest of the time I think had their begrudging respect...
