Carryon Items: A messy bun, oversized pillow, Uggs that are clinging to life, and an attitude that won't quit.

Reason You Just Can't With Them: It's like they put on everything they owned just to hold you up at the security line.

2. The Outlet Stealer

Carryon Items: Every electronic device they own, adapters, extension cords, and the ability to crouch like Gollum for hours without cramping up.

Reason You Just Can't With Them: They are the reason you will go through your trip with a dead phone. Some of us need to post airport selfies to Instagram and can't now.

3. The Seat Hogger

Carryon Items: NyQuil, slip-on shoes that keep slipping off, Jeggings, and a total lack of spatial awareness.

Reason You Just Can't With Them: At some point they will end up drooling on your shoulder.

4. The one who decided to drink to take the edge off, and got suuuper carried away.

Carryon Items: A belly full of Mai Tais that may or may not stay down during the flight.

Reason You Just Can't With Them: At worst, they talk way too loud at you. At worst, they hurl on you.

6. The one who thinks the rules don't apply to them for some reason.

Carryon Items: Total disbelief at being told they can't board with giant bottles of lotion, water, perfume, etc.

Reason You Just Can't With Them: Because if we all have to follow the stupid rules, so do yoooooou. Come on, duh.

7. The nice old lady who talks... and talks... and talks...

Carryon Items: Pictures of her grandchildren, conversation starters for days, and the sweetest disposition.

Reason You Just Can't With Them: As kindly as she may be, you really just want to stick in your headphones and snooze off to the sweet sounds of blaring music.

8. The Emotional Cryer

Carryon Items: Heartache, a kaleidoscope of past memories, and a bag full of tears.

Reason You Just Can't With Them: Air travel is emotional enough already. Plus, they're just a reminder that no one's there crying for you right now. ಥ_ಥ

9. Babies and children who won't shut the hell up.

Carryon Items: Diaper bags, portable DVD players, sticky toys, and a patience that far exceeds normal human capacity.

Reason You Just Can't With Them: If they're not screaming, they're kicking the back of your chair. There's no way out, just accept defeat.
