Day #218: Who’s the Turkey?


The Story:

Clues that it’s the day before Thanksgiving (at work):

  1. People are surprised to see you are there (even though it’s a regular work day)
  2. You arrive at work 20 minutes early because everyone else was stuck in traffic traveling the opposite direction- to their in-laws two states over
  3. Email replies end with the obligatory “Have a Happy Turkey Day!” or auto-generated “Out of Office” reply
  4. Your car is one of only about five vehicles in the lot
  5. All your coworkers’ Facebook statuses refer to pies being ruined, driving and packing that was put off to the last minute or random pictures of table settings
  6. The only other person at work is the IT guy
  7. It feels like a Friday
  8. You get a lot of things checked off of your “To Do List” with no one around to interrupt you
  9. You have nothing for lunch since you refused to go to the grocery and battle all the last minute shoppers and manic hostesses who need that last can of French cut green beans
  10. You’re already a little drunk

The Not So Fantastic Reality:

The above story was inspired by the following tidbits I encountered today:

ONE:      Am I the only one who didn’t get the memo that the Wednesday before Thanksgiving is an understood “take a day off” scenario? At least after 1pm, there was NO ONE in the entire building, except for me and a few others who apparently missed out on the massive email that went out notifying people that no one really goes to work on Turkey Day Eve. Oh well, I got a lot done, wore jeans to work and got treated to lunch by the boss man, so I’m kinda glad I went in today… especially since all that’s awaiting me at home is laundry to put away, housework to do and pies to bake. Better get started…
