Pack a Sense of Humor
Chicago Tribune - November 22, 2005

So is the Sunday after turkey day For Christmas, expect the airport to be jammed on Dec. 23 and Dec. 26, says Michele Perry of TripAdvisor.com. "I think everyone is crankier when it's crowded," Perry says. "Approach it knowing that and try to maintain your sense of humor."  If you're stuck next to a stranger and uncomfortable about it, Perry recommends listening to music with headphones. "People are unlikely to talk to someone with headphones on," she says.
Stuck next to someone with bad B.O.? Try putting on flavored or scented lip balm to help mask the odor, Perry says.
