Response to Original message
This was posted elsewhere, but I agree with the timing:

11:01:39 through metal detector

11:02:00 asked to wait past metal detector. Her stuff is backing up the convey. The mom is visibly annoyed at this point.

11:02:48-3:00 other lady moves her stuff for her

11:03:30 the mom is yelling and waving to get TSA's attention

11:03:49 Female TSA agent lets her out of the first holding area

11:04:07 the mom is yelling

11:04:11 covers mouth, looks like she's going to cry

11:04:32 sitting in the screening area with son on her lap

11:04:04 TSA supervisor (presumably) asks her to calm down, TSA is moving her stuff near her

11:05:28 Male TSA agent screens the kid while he's sitting on his mom's lap

11:05:42 the mom puts the son in the stroller

11:06:15-6:50 The female TSA agent screens the mom. The son is in the stroller 3 feet in front of the mom. The mom removes something from her shoe and puts it on the table.

11:07:20-9:35 The female TSA agent rescreens the mom

11:09:35 the mom is cleared to go. She loads her stuff and leaves at 11:10:29

To summarize: She begins to get annoyed in 30 seconds, and starts yelling after 2 minutes. All told, she had to wait 8 minutes exactly.

Notable discrepancies -- the son was not picked up by the TSA agent. The son was not moved out of sight by the TSA agent. And the lady didn't make any secret cell phone calls.
