Thank you,

but we must decline your kind invitation. It’s rare that someone invites their technology consultants over for dinner at all, let alone for a big holiday meal, and, truly, we are honored. It’s not that we don’t think we’re ready to meet your family, it’s just that — and we hope you don’t take this the wrong way — we already have plans for Thanksgiving.

Step One

We hope we can still provide you with the level of service you’ve come to expect from Macktez, even if we can’t be there in person.
In that spirit, please accept this special support package to help alleviate the most common Thanksgiving ailments.

Step Two

A quick self-diagnosis should identify which Rx is best for you:
[ ] Has gluttony worked your gut into a knot?
[ ] Has a long day with family brought an ache to your head?
Tear open the appropriate package, place tablets in mouth, and wash down with 2-3 glasses of wine. You won’t need to call us in the morning.

Count your blessings

Like everything else, Thanksgiving is subject to interpretive politics. These days, criticism falls on those who place the Pilgrims’ 1621 English Thanksgiving above earlier Spanish Thanksgivings in North America (Texas, 1541; Florida, 1565). Others beg the nation to acknowledge European slaughter of the continent’s aboriginal peoples more effectively than a Presidential turkey pardon. Still others insist on resisting ever-creeping commercialism with a boycott of day-after shopping.

At Macktez we hear all sides, but still think a day to count your blessings can’t be all bad. We have so many to count it’s hard to list just a few.
