Worst Thanksgiving Memories

Thanksgiving has come and gone. The turkey was delicious, the mashed potatoes fluffy, and the company rather pleasant. The day was a complete success and might even go down as one of the best Thanksgivings ever. And you deserve it. After all, you've had some pretty sh*tty Thanksgivings ... like the time Grandma Rose drank too much wine... or the time your cousin forgot to turn on the oven.... or the time you dropped the Turkey... Ahh, yes, who can forget. Sure, we've all had at least one bad T-Day, but those bad memories just give us more to be thankful for!


Here are some of our staffers' worst Thanksgiving memories:

"The first Thanksgiving I ever spent alone was a month after I moved to NYC. I didn't know a soul and was so depressed about being by myself for Thanksgiving. I decided to volunteer at a soup kitchen, but by the time I got there, they had too many volunteers so they just served me dinner instead. It was so depressing." - Julie

"I was in college and unfortunately the only girls I was friends with left town. I ate take-out Boston Chicken (that's what it was called at the time) with 3 disgusting guys at their dirty bachelor pad. We ate on paper plates and watched "Tommy Boy" for dessert." - Annie

"There was the one time where I made a chocolate chip cheesecake (hubby loves it) with the crust my mother in law prefers (vanilla wafers, not graham cracker)... And she announced... 'Who would ruin a perfectly good cheesecake with chocolate chips?' In front of everyone." - Kate

"We had just gotten our new puppy, Max. We had plans to spend the holiday out of town and couldn't bear the thought of boarding our new family member -- so we decided to bring him along for the visit. BAD IDEA. Compared to my sister's perfectly angelic Border Terrier, Max was the demon dog from hell...jumping up on the counter, darting frenetically from room to room, binge barking. The crowning moment came with a loud thud: Max had gone out the doggie door into the garage and managed to leap up on top of the dryer and drag the thawed turkey onto the floor. There wasn't enough wine in the house to numb our self-loathing and total humiliation." - Jill

"One year during college I decided to stay and have Thanksgiving with a boyfriend and his family. Not only did they not serve any traditional Thanksgiving food (I think instead of turkey they had fish), but when I went to serve myself more pasta, his grandmother told me I really shouldn't eat more. 'She's a big a girl.' Worst Thanksgiving ever!" - Jenny

I was suggested this web site by my cousin. I am not sure whether this post is written by him as nobody else know such detailed about my problem. You’re amazing! Thanks!

Unquestionably believe that which you said. Your favorite justification seemed to be on the internet the easiest thing to be aware of. I say to you, I certainly get irked while people consider worries that they just don’t know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top as well as defined out the whole thing without having side effect , people can take a signal. Will likely be back to get more. Thanks
