While it seems like travel delays take up the better part of your entire life you should rest easy. It’s actually only a month.

Hoppa, an airport transfer service, recently released a stunning infographic that proves that draining feeling you have during various delays is quite real.

According to Hoppa’s blog, you are slowly being drained one month of your life, sort of like Westley strapped to The Machine in “The Princess Bride.”

As Hoppa found, the average traveler spends a whopping 28.4 days delayed. We hope this fact doesn’t hit you as you read this following graphic from a place in the airport as you await news on your delayed flight.

However, there are some other intriguing facts to pore over, such as the top five causes of said delays as well as average traffic times in congested cities.

Prepare to be amazed by delays:
