Everyone in America knows that laptops grow on trees, and there’s no greater proof of this than the TSA’s massive collection of laptops.

The TSA tweeted last week that about 70 laptops — mostly expensive MacBooks by the looks of it — that were left behind at security. Whatever, these people will just walk over to the magic laptop tree and grab a new laptop.

People are regularly doing things like that. Mashable reports, “In a 2014 story, Capital Public Radio in Sacramento, California, reported that roughly 20,000 items, each priced at $500 or more, were left at checkpoints around the country. Those items eventually get sent to TSA's Virginia headquarters, while less valuable objects make their way to re-sale shops.”

If you’re one of the few people who cannot just walk over to the laptop tree and pick a new laptop, there are steps you can take. In addition to sending a message to the TSA on Twitter at or Facebook, you can call their Lost & Found. Just in case you forgot your loaded gun or fingernail thingy.

Michelle Dunaj, who is dying of leukemia, was Hawaii-bound for one of the last trips of her life. But the TSA in Seattle made it memorable for a different reason:

She called Alaska Airlines ahead of time to request a wheelchair and to ask how her medicines should be separated for the security line.

"I did everything they asked me to do, so I didn't think it would be an issue," she said.

But Dunaj says nothing went right at the security checkpoint. A machine couldn't get a reading on her saline bags, so a TSA agent forced one open, contaminating the fluid she needs to survive. She says agents also made her lift up her shirt and pull back the bandages holding feeding tubes in place. Dunaj needs those tubes because of organ failure. With other passengers staring, Dunaj says she asked for privacy and was turned down.

"They just said that it was fine; the location we were at was fine," she said.

TSA is responding to a request to look into the incident.
