Chicago OHara Airport Madness!

Chicago, Illinois, United States
This can't be anyone's favorite airport! O'Hare is huge, and it's from an era before airports had much in the way of amenities, and this airport is stretched beyond capacity
i have to remember next time, to avoid booking a flight through O'hare if at all possible, especially in the winter time. I can handle long lines but it was the snippy attitudes of the airport employees, much worse than any other airport we have traveled through. They were yelling from the time we got off the plane, God help you if you need to ask them a questions! We had to pickup our luggage then return it to United after going through 3 security screenings, we were singled out for a 3rd screening, lifting our heavy luggage onto the conveyor belt, 3 times! Then the drop off area was so unorganized, not just airport busy, really chaotic, the guy yelling at everyone.
But it did have a piano in the terminal and FREE Wi-Fi!
Good to know and to keep for future references:
