Thanksgiving Eve is perhaps the biggest party night of the year, but it certainly doesn't come without its headaches. Heading back home for the holidays can be a joyous occasion, but it can also be pretty freakin' miserable when it comes to running into old "friends" from high school. Sure, you want to socialize, but you don't exactly want to get buddy-buddy with the dudes who were stuffing you into lockers and copying off your math homework for four years.
If you're like us and you want to go out and have a good time without the pressure of dealing with asshats you left behind on graduation day, you might want to follow this advice closely. If not, have fun letting the former captain of the football team pants you all over again. There's nothing like teenage humiliation in your mid-twenties.
