custom check

After a long overseas flight, a young mother wearily arrived at airport customs with her four sons and three daughters, all under the age of twelve. Toting their many suitcases, the family finally got through the long line where the customs official stared at them skeptically.
“Ma’am?” he asked. “Are all these children and all this luggage yours?”
“Yes, sir,” replied the harried mother.
“Well, ma’am, do you have any weapons, contraband or illegal drugs in your possession?”
She looked him in the eye and calmly answered, “Sir, if I had any of those, I assure you I would have already used them!”
He let her pass without opening a single suitcase.
