What is the Strangest Question You’ve Ever Been Asked While Crossing the US-Canadian Border?
Being New Yorkers, we have the opportunity to cross the border with Canada often. Have you ever had a border patrol agent ask you a weird question while crossing the border?
Inspired by this discussion thread on reddit, several interesting stories came up from border crossings. One person, who was from a southern state, was asked, "about guns. They saw my license and said 'Are you suuurrre you don't have any guns'"
Another story related to a US border patrol agent who may need to brush up a bit on geography,
Border patrol officer asked me where I was from. I replied, "United States," because I thought she needed to know my nationality. Her reply:
"There are 52 states in the union. Which one are you from?"
