We all move at some point or another. Some of us more than others.

In fact one in six Americans move every year, according to the Census Bureau. The average American will move almost 12 times in their lifetime.

The frequency with which we relocate is in despite of how utterly agonizing it is to sort through and pack up your stuff, load it in a truck, lug it across town, store it, load it again and finally unpack and arrange it in your new pad.

Below are reactions to some of the most challenging moments you are likely to encounter during a move or self-storage rental:

1. When you first tell your friends that you are going to move.

2. When you get your friends to help you move, instead of you know, actual movers.

3. When you try to get everything in one load.
