This morning while I was shopping for Thanksgiving at the Smith's downtown, I struck up a conversation with an employee, who suddenly launched about how wrong it is for people to shop on Thanksgiving. She's senior enough herself that she isn't working on Thanksgiving, but she thinks it's better for folks to stay home and enjoy their people and their meal and give everybody a break.
And all I could do was stand there and say "d'accord." Which was weird. Because I usually don't speak French when I'm shopping for Thanksgiving at Smith's.
