    Who here has the joy (and by joy, I mean displeasure) of working on Thanksgiving this year?

    I work that day and work on Blitz day, as well.

    I work 8-5, so consider yourself lucky. Might get some free food in the break room, don't know yet.

    I'm a Cart Pusher at Wal-Mart...a tough job with low pay...at least I get holiday pay on Thanksgiving.

    I work in a smaller store than Wal-Mart. A LOT smaller. I'm a manager there and the pay is great. Tonight, half the electric went out and most of are coolers stopped running. All that food is probably gonna go to waste. The insurance should cover it though.

    But that's what makes Thanksgiving so fun. Gathering around the table and giving thanks with your loved ones. Come on, Kritish...
