If you're getting ready to head out of town for Thanksgiving, here's some proof that your travel day might suck, in case you needed it: a recent survey conducted by Concur, a travel and expense management company, found that LAX is the second most stressful airport in the country.

The LA Business Journal reports that our city's flight hub came in second only to Chicago's O'Hare when it comes to being anxiety-provoking. The results were gathered through interviews with 1,000 people who fly regularly for business.

Coming in on the other end of the spectrum was Dallas-Ft. Worth International Airport, which was ranked the least stressful. Apparently stress is the only thing that is not bigger in Texas.
