Do you plan on actually cooking Thanksgiving dinner this year, rather than being one of the 14 million people planning on feasting in a restaurant? Then the Times-Pic's dining editor Judy Walker has some advice for you when you do our holiday shopping.
Most of this stuff is just common courtesy. Don't abandon your cart in the middle of the aisle, say "thank you" to the check out personnel, hold the door for each other, and for the love of all that is holy, keep an eye on your damn children.
And then once you're done shopping and clear of the parking lot: "Give thanks that you survived."
