Man, I hate LAX. It just has no 'accommodation' in the strictest sense of the word. We landed at some terminal and had to find our way to some other terminal, and there's just nothing there to help you achieve this - I mean seriously, how many million people transfer at LAX annually? Yet there's not a single sign that points to the inter-terminal shuttle anywhere along the route including at the shuttle stop. Is it some kind of LA thing - you have to be "hungry" enough to make it otherwise you are stuck in the lounge waiting tables?
We had to exit security in order to transfer so when we managed to find the terminal that UA uses, we had to go through security again. With a sleepy 3 year-old in tow, we stumbled across the (unmarked) access to the scanning area half-crammed into a corridor and got in line behind a velvet rope that lined either side of a busy through-way.  

Then to cap it off, one of the jobsworth security woman manning the checkpoint refuses to take 4 steps to get pour out the remaining water in our waterbottle (from the first leg of the flight) but insists that she had to escort one of us out of the security area the long way through a back door and then go back through the x-ray again. While the woman is explaining this, Perrin announced that she desperately needed a washroom but we couldn't leave our bags so she stood there with pee running down her legs as Sandra went on her pointless trip back through security.  

When Sandra arrived back at the xray, the other jobsworth who had just checked our boarding passes and then stood there watching the whole exchange over the water bottle, asked once again for the boarding pass...which Jon was holding out of sight on the other side of security. 

And they were playing effing Christmas carols over the sound system and it wasn't even effing December yet!
I hate LAX.
