New Jersey is arguing at the airport. Here are the five scenarios that get us Garden Staters worked up the most.

Ah, traveling.

Even when the destination is desirable, the art of getting where you're going can be a hassle, especially when it involves an airport and especially when you've got travel mates.


From leaving the house on time to making sure you have everything you need, a trip to the airport out of New Jersey and beyond can be an undertaking.

Someone always leaves a plane ticket or passport behind. Someone is always late to the meeting point. Traffic can complicate arriving to an airport on time. You're ride share or shuttle could be late. There are just so many variables!

Maybe the next time you're at an airport and feel your anger bubbling under, grab a drink or read a book and try and be patient, lol. Happy travels!
