Thanksgiving Dinner
Old 11-09-2017, 07:03 PM

In my family, we do holiday (Thanksgiving and Christmas) on a rotating schedule so it is at someone else's house every year. This year, my sister is supposed to host us and she wants to try something new and have Thanksgiving Dinner at Waffle House (on Thanksgiving) so she can go hit up all the sales and not have to worry about cleaning up.

She hasn't told my parents yet and I want to be there when she does so I can tell the police exactly how she died

I don't have a Waffle House around me so I looked up the menu. Yeah, doesn't exactly say Thanksgiving, does it?

Waffle House? Actually I shouldn't speak as I've never been to one. Nah, screw it, it's basically IHOP, right? No jury would convict your mom

Yikes! Be sure to record it for evidence also.

Out of all the places open for Thanksgiving dinner, she picked Waffle House?

You Have to be Kidding

Thanksgiving dinner at Waffle House??? It sounds like going shopping is more important to her than celebrating the holiday with her family.

Please update us on how this all goes.

Well, I have been know to suggest ordering pizza for Thanksgiving and Christmas. Actually, I've been serious about it more than once. I've been taking care of ill family members while prepping the house and doing my part of the cooking for many years. It is stressful, and I can't remember the holiday I truly enjoyed. Anyway - tell your sister that she's never going to get anyone to agree with that. What she needs to do is pick up a take out Thanksgiving dinner somewhere like Cracker Barrel. She can get Thanksgiving plates, napkins, etc from the party store or even Walmart. Easy peasy! And she'll still be alive to shop!

Your sister would be better to tell the family (SOON) that she is giving up her turn serving Thanksgiving Dinner, that someone else will have to do it. If that won't fly, ordering a precooked meal from a restaurant or grocery store is a good option. There might be a person or two in a family that doesn't want the fuss of anyone cooked Thanksgiving meal, but that's no reason to ruin it for the ones that do.

OMG YES!

Seriously, this on the level of Andy Kaufman genius.

People who need their golden moment Thanksgiving will give WH a hard pass. #winning You aren't required to make their moment happen.

Peoole who have 5 stops to do might get coffee/whatever, or do a hard pass and secretly thank you. #WinWin

People who are like your sister, where Thanksgiving is an obligation of work with no fun (not everyone wants to host), I think it's brilliant.

Every Thanksgiving for me has been extended family fighting like pit bulls on crank. So the free floor show at Waffle House is a definite upgrade.

#JEALOUS

PS if she's truly kidding for a reaction, that's a good one.
