Working On Thanksgiving
Not everyone had the luxury of enjoying a big holiday meal with their families today. It was business as usual for some people here in the mountains who spent Thanksgiving working.
For those who have to work, it's not all bad. Some people who say they actually look forward to working on Thanksgiving.
If holiday travel trouble is delaying dinner, AAA doesn't take Thanksgiving off. Roadside emergencies kept John Parker busy. If you need a jolt of java to keep you awake on the drive to grandma's house, the drive-thru is staffed at McDonald's.
As is J & S Cafeteria. Thanksgiving is one of their busiest days of the year. Manager David Yontz says staff has been preparing for days and that he looks forward to it.
