I grunted when she said she was working 1am Thanksgiving night through to 9am Friday morning. But she said, "No, it's ok. My kids will be sleeping so they won't even know I'm gone. And we could use the extra money anyway. Plus working *here* makes me feel like I'm helping other kids have better Christmases too." What a great perspective.
Plus, she worked her magic on the register to accept my expired-by-one-day Groupon ;)
