      I rented an apartment less than 10 miles from them. But they always called me and never popped in at my house or anywhere else for that matter. So that is how I was raised but then my parents though had an open door policy so they got the pop ins but never did it to others.

    •  We had a friend call. We said, "No." (2+ / 0-)

      Long story, but the essence is she turned down every scenario from her family to hold Thanksgiving herself, insisting she wanted her 9-months-preggo daughter to do it -- not happening, as you'd expect.

      Guess her plans to have turkey with her fellow condo-dwellers "fell through." If she'd called a couple of days or weeks before, we would have happily accommodated her. You don't invite yourself to Thanksgiving on Thanksgiving Day -- period.
