Mere seconds/a minute figure out who is the good guy and who is not.
And then there is, 'When I ask a question, will I get a truthful answer?'
Once, DW and I were asked, 'Are you taking over (I think it was $2,500) into Canada.' We said 'Yes' (This was ~30+ years ago).
'Well, you'll have to park over there and take it inside to declare it.' Of course getting weird looks from the agents (these hippie kids with that much cash... must be for drugs!)
