Not lucky, as his experience is more typical than you would expect. has a lot do do with what is worth the time of the Customs officer. If he had said yes to booze or tobacco it would be different. Everything purchased would be up for discussion.

so why did you declare the phone? with all the traffic at that crossing, he was probably grumpy because your honesty interuppted the smooth flow of "don't ask. don't tell" smuggling that occurs at all busy crossings.

Back in the heyday of cross border shopping there was a joke making the rounds in Sault ste Marie Michigan (across river from Sault ste Mare Ont)
" How do you spot a Canadian in Soo, MI?
" He is carrying 2 turkeys and smnells like gasoline"
