Do you get any extra days off during the week of Thanksgiving?
I started a new job over the summer and this will be the first year that I won't be working the Friday after Thanksgiving. I also usually travel during the week, but I get to work from home Monday through Wednesday. I've chosen to use the time at home to scare the crap out of my two year old by introducing him to The Neverending Story (the wolf still creeps me out, but he loves the Rock Biter so my plan isn't working).
Are you still stuck at work, even on the Friday after Thanksgiving?
