4. I hear ya.
I worked the day after Thanksgiving last year, too (different job, but I was the newest person in the dept., so I had to be there). I probably could have taken the day off today, but I've only been here 5 months and felt weird about asking off. If, G-d willing, I'm still at this place next year, I'll definitely see if I can take the day off. It was a ghost town today.

3. As a business owner, there's no specific day when I HAVE to work, but there are
many days when I'd damn well BETTER get some work done, or people will get hungry around this house.

8. I kept the wheels of commerce turning
Not personally all by myself. But I am one of the cogs.

9. I just quit my job before I moved... but had I not done so, I don't think
I would have had to work today. I'm fairly certain we get Thursday and Friday off on Thanksgiving week.
However, the next day is when the fun begins.
