NEWARK, N.J., Oct. 25 (UPI) -- A woman who traveled from New Jersey to Ireland said a Transportation Security Administration card in her luggage told her to "GET YOUR FREAK ON."

Jill Filipovic, a blogger for Feministe.us, said she found the TSA card, which is frequently left in the luggage of passengers after their checked bags have been searched, in her luggage after flying from Newark to Dublin during the weekend and she was shocked to find someone had written "GET YOUR FREAK ON GIRL" on the official form, ABC News reported Tuesday.

"Just unpacked my suitcase and found this note from TSA," Filipovic wrote to her Twitter account. "Guess they discovered a 'personal item' in my bag. Wow."

Filipovic described the "personal item" as "the most basic lady-thing you can imagine."

Filipovic wrote the note was "total violation of privacy, wildly inappropriate and clearly not OK, but I also just died laughing in my hotel room."

She said she plans to file a complaint with the TSA when she returns to the United States.

A TSA representative said the agency is "one of several entities" handling checked bags and there is currently "no concrete evidence who wrote the note."

"If inappropriate conduct is discovered, TSA (will take) appropriate disciplinary action," the representative said.
