Don't want to cook on thanksgiving, go ahead and take advantage of some poor soul who was unable to get the day off. I mean, come on, who really cares about them, right? We are CONSUMERS and we DRIVE THE ECONOMY. Do the world a favor and stay home or at the home of friends or family on holidays like this or pretty soon we will ALL be working on Thanksgiving.
