23 Airport Moments That Will Test Your Will To Live

I'm in the wrong security line? Well, which line is best for a nervous breakdown, then?

Posted on

1. When you arrive early to the airport, and are rewarded with a line like this in return.

What fresh hell is this?!

2. When someone asks to see your ID, but you can't find it anywhere.

It's in my bag right?! It has to be in there, because if it's not, that means I'll miss my flight and have to go through this insanity all over again.

3. Getting assigned to a zone that will absolutely be called last, and knowing you'll have to check your carry-on.

The whole point of packing a carry-on is that you get to carry it ON. THE. PLANE.

4. Having to take off your shoes, and realizing that your socks make you look like a crazy person.

Or worse, when you wear shoes without socks, and have to walk through security in your bare feet. (RIP happiness.)


7. Having to make the choice between getting hot food or missing your flight.

8. And when you realize the cost of buying ANYTHING anywhere at the airport.

$13 for a banana and a prepackaged sandwich? Great.


10. When you see signs like this that make you question how the world works.

11. When you're stuck in line, on the brink of missing your flight, and you watch the pre-TSA screening line just breezing on past you.

Zero fucks were given.


17. Seeing people who are still confused about getting things into bins in the TSA line, even though we've been doing this for 12 years.


21. When you have to try and explain where you are to someone picking you up, and you realize there are 15 different "Terminal A" signs.
