some have an amazing work ethic and drive ....and once in a while someone recognizes it in a sweet way. :thumbup:

(CNN)While it doesn't have much to do with Turkey, a waitress at a Denny's restaurant in Galveston, Texas, has a lot to be thankful for this Thanksgiving.

Almost every day, Adrianna Edwards walks over four hours to and from work.
"I have bills to pay," Edwards told CNN affiliate KTRK. "I've got to eat. You've got to do what you've got to do."
But her walking days are finally over.
A couple she served at the restaurant on Tuesday bought her a new car -- just hours after they'd met.
Edwards can now start college earlier than she thought.

I know this is not really the take-away here, but first - their English... just fantastic that they all speak such comfortable, fluent, natural English... and secondly, what the fuck was going on with the subtitles?

For some reason the BBC decided to default to "on" in this clip. You can click on the menu and switch them off.

I'm not talking about the presence of subtitles; I am talking about how the audio dialogue and subtitle dialogue didn't match at all.
