I dont really remember a 'worse" Thanksgiving, but I did have a hectic one in 2004. I flew home from Missouri that day after my son's graduation from Basic/AIT. So did my son, and my other son was flying home with his Dad. Three different flights, and it was obnoxious! My daughter and SIL were hom making dinner, and by the time we all converged on them none of us were very hungry and all were exhausted. My SIL was not a happy camper that his chef skills were going under appreciated. He said this year he would cook again, "But you all better eat!"
I don't know about worst one, but a funny one....My aunt 'slaved' away making the turkey , and when all the other fixings were done and it was time to eat, she got the turkey out of the oven and it wasn't done...she forgot to turn the oven on!!
one time when my daughter was small , we had an old table. well i set it up real nice for the two of us , we were just ready to eat and i told her to put her legs in front of her because she had a bad habit of sitting on her legs . so she swung them around and knocked the leg right off the table and when that happened the other leg gave away also and our turkey slid off the table onto the floor ,but everything was still on the plates .. the only thing i think we lost was the gravy .. we got lucky .. then we made our plates and ate in front of the tv ..
We all need to have a creative outlet - a window, a space - so we don't lose track of ourselves.

Wow, didn't she check it for basting? I would have noticed the missing turkey smell in the air
My daughter's Mother in Law did the very same thing a few years ago. Maybe they have the same relative. I was thinking the same thing Sparks, but then you would have to know this lady, to appreciate how she could have done it.
The worst was when we lost a great life long friend, and so young, he died Thanksgiving Day. The ER sent him home and told him you are having heart burn. His family tried getting him back to the hospital but the ambulance was not fast enough, and the hospital majorly goofed. It was not the ambulance service's fault. But, it made a very sad Thanksgiving forever and he will always be missed.
Was years ago.... Had a great T-day dinner...then after dinner decided to go to the movies to see the opening of Back to the future II ....On the way to the theatre on Jefferson Road in Henrietta i here a loud SNAP.... Then I whatch in horror as my rear driver side wheel and axel rod pass me ....go into the other lane and hit a car head on.... the the rear of my car collapsed and sparks were flying everywhere.... not only was there a lot of damage to my car...but my tire and axel rod TOTALLED the other vehicle Boy did I ever scramble to hide my beer and weed LMAO
I wouldn't say "worst" Thanksgiving, but saddest was in 92 when my son was born. He was born the Mon before Thanksgiving, but was Jaundiced and had to stay in the hospital, so I went home Thanksgiving Day without him only long enough to eat and see my brother who was home from VA and right back to the hospital to be with my Lil man. I did get to eventually bring him home later that night, but it still stunk to be without him for the day. This year his Birthday falls on Thanksgiving Day and he is going to be 14! Yikes! Am I really old enough to have a 14 year old? He almost ended up in the hospital for Christmas, too..........I'll save that story for when we do a Christmas thread.........
