Was I scammed into Thanksgiving?

I wasn’t planning on celebrating Thanksgiving. I just wanted to relax and not cook or do anything. Then my sister invites me over for Thanksgiving. I thought fine, maybe that is better than sitting home alone. So after I already accepted the invitation I asked her what I should bring just to he polite. And she says since she’s hosting and very busy, could I take care of the turkey? WTF? Who asks someone to bring the turkey? She said she always liked how I made it, blah, blah, blah.

Ugh, so now I went from not cooking this year to currently brining a turkey. The more it soaks the more I’m resenting this. How did I get roped into this? Why didn’t she just ask initially when she invited me instead of it being a two-step process of securing my RSVP first and then asking me to bring the turkey? Just be upfront in the beginning instead of doing this manipulation and theater.

Just show up with a bowl of popcorn, some jelly beans and a stack of buttered toast OP. Problem solved!

Just turn off your phone and don't show up tomorrow, OP. That'll teach her.

Yeah, I would test positive for covid.

She duped you, OP. Siblings get away with that kind of behavior.

This is actually common. People feel obligated to have Thanksgiving, but they often don’t want to cook the turkey (and get complaints if it doesn’t turn out well).

You should have said no.

Order one and give her the bill.

Buy 10 packages of that cheap Buddig turkey roll crap (I think it might still be 99 cents a package) and keep the turkey for yourself.

She's a cunt.

This never happened

Privately shame her. Your sister now owes you a favor in return.

Why didn't you just say no when she told you to bring a turkey?

Not since the indigenous people were fucked over have I heard a tale so fowl.

Butterball sells precooked whole turkeys in your grocer’s refrigerated section. Nobody has any excuses for horrible turkey for Thanksgiving Day any longer.

You could put something special into the turkeys opening. Only you would know.
