My ex-husband was given a turkey by the factory he worked at. He grew up poor so he chose the BIGGEST turkey they had, like 25+ pounds! We lived away from family, just the two of us in an apartment with a small(ish) freezer that would in no way accomidate this ENORMOUS turkey until Thanksgiving. And we lived in Indiana and the weather did not get cold enough to keep it in the bed of his truck for 2 weeks.
Oh, did I mention I WAS A VEGETARIAN?
So, I started calling around to homeless shelters that would take this damn turkey immediately, and the whole time, he is FURIOUS. I finally find a community center that will it RIGHT NOW, but my ex will not let me take his truck and refuses to help me move the damn turkey into my car. So I lug the stupid turkey into the back of my car and deliver the turkey to people the needed it a whole lot less than we did!
Um, yea, we did not last much longer! LOL!!
What about you!? Drop the turkey? Dogs get to the turkey before you? Share your stories!
