    The wife is working Thanksgiving. I get the rugrat all day. We're not going to leave the couch except to get more popcorn and make pit stops.

    Our Thanksgiving is long gone (atleast I think it is). And I didn't have to work in the sense that I leave the house and get payed to do so. Though I wish I did.

    Meh, I haven't had a proper Thanksgiving in four years, due to being out of the country.

    I'm staying here in Austin just so I can work over the Thanksgiving holidays. I'll be getting about 56 hours in a 10 day span from the 16th to the 26th, which is roughly $400 that a poor college student like me (who just went halfsies on an Xbox 360) could find a good use for. Time and a half on Thanksgiving means I'll get $12 and hour for 8 hours to babysit the front desk of one of the dorms all night because there will be hardly anyone actually there to bother me.

    Haha, I already had Thanksgiving.... and didn't work though that. Plus, I'm dating a woman in the US, so I can BS my way into justifying an expensive dinner for myself that night. :grin:

    I have worked on Thanksgiving mornings before several times. This year however I am going to visit my sainted mother.

    One year I spent most of it fighting a forest fire. I still got home to watch some football though.

    I wish I could work on Turkey day. I am picking up every shift at my restaurant that I can when I get back to Houston and sadly, who would think that a place that serves food would be closed on that day. I need every dime I can get.

    Knowing the Goodwill, I'll probably have to work on Thanksgiving. The schedule comes out tomorrow, so I guess I'll find out then.

    The departement I work for is 24x7. I lucked out though, I do have to work Turkey Day, but X-Mas and New Years both fall on my days off, sweet!
