When it comes to peoples thought of perfect, only a little over half of Americans felt that things go as planned. 41 percent of Americans say waiting on Thanksgiving dinner and being hungry is the biggest Thanksgiving fail.  According to the survey if turkey is served and it taste nasty… Well that’s considered the second biggest mishap that could happen on turkey day.  One in four Americans say they’ve dealt with an over cooked turkey…That’s probably why they prefer ham! The third biggest fail is not having enough seats for everyone to enjoy dinner, while fourth place goes to the host completely forgetting to stock up on cranberry sauce and having dry dressing. In fifth place is spilling a dish on the floor, nobody wants to see grandma’s good potato salad on the kitchen floor before someone got to try it.
