You'll Never Believe How Terrible This Airport Security Line Is

Somehow, airport security keeps getting worse. Recently, the Department of Homeland Security issued a statement about increased wait times in TSA lines due to limited staff and an influx of travelers. But while travelers wait for a fix, those lines are getting worse all the time. Just like this one.

CNN Money recently recommended getting to the airport two hours early even for domestic flights due to increased wait times, but you'll need even more time than that to get through this line filmed by Sean H, which was apparently spotted at Chicago Midway this week. The line is so absolutely ridiculous, the video scored more than a million views since it was posted on Thursday.

Fittingly titled, "TSA are you f***ing kidding me?" the video follows the TSA line for two minutes until it finally reaches the end, and is peppered by the filmmakers exclamations of "We're just getting started" and "You like how long that shit is?" It's, in fact, very long shit.

Watch it and then please, please get to the airport early. You've been warned.
