The weather system that blanketed Denver on Sunday and Monday is now wreaking havoc throughout the Midwest -- and one result has been huge delays at Denver International Airlines. Around 1,000 passengers have reportedly been stranded, with the majority stuck as a result of United Airlines canceling twenty-plus flights. Similar delays have impacted cities such as Chicago and Houston, too.

With nothing to do but hang out, plenty of disgruntled passengers have been venting their spleen on Twitter. Here are the fifteen most memorable tweets we found, many accompanied by photos from the scene. Count them down below.

Step 1: Blame United for the weather delay

Step 2: Be one of a thousand people calling customer service all at once, blame United for not getting to you right away

Step 3: Bitch about it all on twitter


This is what social media has wrought - a whole universe in which to whine, bitch and moan over something no one has control over.

Real stand up writing Westword. Take 4 tweets from one person, sprinkle a few others in, call it a top 15 list, generate clicks.

Can't think of a better airport to be stranded in. Of course, it sucks when Mother Nature has you holed up in an airport, but it could be worse than DIA. Maybe DIA should be handing out joints to chill the anger?

Who are they mad at? Themselves, for not checking the weather.

You know...I used to work for United. And I don't condone most things United. However, people need to recognize. A: you're traveling into Denver, yes we have weather at times, not the airlines fault people!! B: Be glad you're in Denver, we have a lot more options to get you where you need to be than a lot of other cities, plus being stranded in Denver..? it could be worse. 3rd: You people SERIOUSLY have NO idea what not only the customer service agents have dealt with, but ground crew, operations and crew member's. Do you really think we want to stand on our feet for 10 hours helping people we don't know get to Disney World and having them yelling at us like its our fault? Oh, and also, you probably packed your medications in your checked bag right? lol cool. PASSENGERS FLY SMART!!!!!!!!!!

A more civilized country would not be as dependent on air travel by having alternate means of transportation readily available. Specifically, proper passenger rail.

You know, I've been to a lot of airports and I've yet to see one that had comfortable beds for people who were stranded. Do they exist in other cities?

That's happened to me at DIA before. I had to sleep on the floor at the airport. And those lines to get new boarding passes....tremendously long!

The weather issue isn't here, it is elsewhere. They can't put people on a plane if there is nowhere safe to land. They'd be sitting on the Tarmac for a day and would probably complain about that too! Is there a way we can help? I live close by and would be open to helping a family stranded.
