So I started a new job here in Asheville recently. Yesterday they asked me if I could come in tonight and work until close.  I didn't have anything going on so I said "sure."  Well this morning my family in Charlotte calls me and surprises me with tickets to the game tomorrow, and they want to tailgate in the morning, which means I would have to leave tonight.   :

 

So do I call in to work and tell them I can't come because of the Panther surprise, or do I bite the bullet and look like a good employee and skip the game?  I'm leaning towards calling in, because I don't get a chance to go to many games because of logistics cost. Plus we're good this year. Plus it's a surprise Christmas gift.

I blew off a sales trip to Houston for the MNF Game, so you know what my opinion is.

Depends on the likely reaction and backlash of calling in now. A big deal, then I would not risk it fir a football game. Not that big of a deal , them call in.

You could call in sick.

Depends on how much you value the job. Panthers games are great and all, but they dont pay the bills unless you work for the organization.

I wouldn't get off until about 11:30 tonight...tailgating starts after people wake up and take showers.......then it's time to pepper the coffee with some Bailey's. I think we wanted to hit the light rail about 9:30 though. Which mean I'd have to leave around 7am from Asheville.

Get off at 11:30....head home for 5-6 hrs of sleep....then drive in. You would be here by 8am.

Don't see the issue....I prob won't get but 5 hrs of sleep tonight.

Yeah not sure of the dilemma here. It seems that work today and football tomorrow are both doable.

If you had to work tomorrow, then that's a different story.

I'd imagine your parents would understand if you were a little late. Sunday mornings up from Charleston is usually a pretty quick trip.

I think your best option is to do both then.  5-6 hours of sleep is enough for a football game.  If you are a little late for tailgating then no worry.  The game and having a job are more important.

Just be honest. You will probably be rewarded. Or get someone else to cover you.

Tailgating is fun, but the game is the biggest part. Go to work, go home, sleep, get up at 5 or 6, and drive to Charlotte. Not a big deal. All else fails, you will get home before too late tomorrow night, which means you can hit the hay a bit early and catch up on any lost sleep.
