Moving away from your hometown has some great benefits. Like people don’t see you on Facebook and say, “Still hanging out with those guys, huh?” And your brother can never ask you to babysit. But one of the few times a year that you really regret living away is Thanksgiving, when you and millions of other Americans have to pack up the car or jump on a plane to get home for the holidays.
And the experience is roughly about as painful as jury duty.
But as much as there is wrong with Thanksgiving travel, there are some aspects of it that are... absolutely awful. And these are them.
1. Jacked-up airfares
If you wanna leave on Wednesday after work and return Sunday night before The Walking Dead, there may actually be cheaper flights to the moon.
2. Packed planes
Just go ahead and check a bag because those overhead compartments WILL be filled with Black Friday purchases before they even think about boarding Zone 2.
