It's not in your imagination, either: Travel experts say it's true.

Sadly, if you're stuck in traffic in a car, you can't really do anything about it (except complain on social media and literally go crazy). If you're flying, though, there is a solution...

Specifically, follow along to our official day-before-Thanksgiving drinking game!

HBO

Take a sip whenever you spot one of these classic airport or airplane moments ... and you'll be ~that much closer~ to not giving a f*ck about the crowds.
