(The store I works at is open on Thanksgiving Day until two o’clock. We have a steady flow of people from morning until about one in the afternoon. This is the common conversation at the register:)

Customer: “Do you have to work late today?”

Me: “No. The store closes at two.”

Customer: “Have you had a lot of people here today?”

Me: “Yes, but this is nothing compared to yesterday. Yesterday was nonstop.”

Customer: “Are you cooking your Thanksgiving dinner?”

Me: “No. My mom is. It’s just intimate family this year, so they have no problem waiting for me.”

Customer: “Thank you for being here today.”

Me: “You’re welcome.”

(I didn’t dare tell anyone that I had no choice and I was scheduled to work Thanksgiving Day.)
