    US Citizens Told Not To Travel For Thanksgiving Celebrations

    Americans have been told not to travel next week for Thanksgiving celebrations. Spending the holiday on 26 November with people who aren’t in their household is a big no too. The safest way to celebrate this year is at home with the people in your household.

    Is this the same situation in your area now?

    Man, if only we had shut everything down for like three weeks six months ago and then cut a few checks to cover the drag and then just had everyone wear masks.

    But nope!

    Doesn't help when there is only one road in Canada that everyone travels on.

    It’s a lot easier when the highest office in the land isn’t saying to ignore medical experts and trust him on blind faith instead.

    Only way that would work if we stopped travel and shut down essential businesses. During that time we essential people didn't get squat. At my former job 8 people on days popped positive for the bud light. Out of like 12 people. The hypothesis was they were swapping spit while carpooling together. What they decide to do is their business.

    My brothers job is getting their ass kicked by the MD20/20 as well. That and 3PL businesses are hurting for people but that's a whole other topic. My family decided to say fuck the haters and host a Thanksgiving. I'm not attending I don't need to get sick after starting this job.

    Don't see what that has to do with the joke about Canada only having 1 road...

    Actually, there are two roads. Number 1 and the Yellowhead.

    that's why not making it a politically divisive issue was important, but that ship sailed like 7 months ago

    The real question is.....


    Does anyone ever eat the green bean casserole?

    Green bean casserole is delicious, but not if it’s from canned green beans and Campbell’s soup. If you use fresh green beans and make the sauce from scratch with mushrooms it’s pretty damn good. I also usually go for GF canned fried onions because I don’t want to waste all the time making them, but the brand of onions is better than French’s, at least in my opinion.

    Anyhow, I’m spending this thanksgiving alone in Japan anyways. There’s been an uptick in cases in Tokyo but I feel safer here than in my hometown.

    It’s as fine a delivery method for hot sauce... but... no... I skip that shit... My gf’s dad deep fries a Turkey, roasts a prime rib and has honey glazed ham for the philistines. No room for sides... must consume meat... I look forward to this all year and no... we are staying home.

    People here on Base are pretty much doing whatever they want, saying they won’t let COVID stop them from seeing family, that they will “continue to live their lives as normal”.

    It’s pretty upsetting, not to mention extremely ignorant and selfish. People just don’t care.

    Not at all surprising, but I'm glad I finished almost all the shopping earlier this week. I can just see the wonderful disease house grocery stores will turn into the 3 days prioir
