sounds like you answered your own question....goto work then drive to clt and stay the night there and go tailgating in the am.  Your parents really get up at 8am to tailgate?  We usually go about 10, 2 hrs of drinking then head to the game an hour or so early so we make it in by kick off.  Unless you don't work on Mon then drinking from 7am until 4 (after the game is over) I would be worthless. KEEP POUNDING!!!!!

I'm gonna start drinking......responsibly around 10.  I just want to be there so I don't have to make a round trip in the same day only to be at work by 7:30 am Monday. That's just exhausting.

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.

 

Go to work,then catch a few zzzzz's and head down to Charlotte. Even if you miss most of the tailgate,you will still see the game,which is more important. Enjoy.

Well I went in and worked my butt off with a good attitude and he comes up to me about an hour after my shift starts and says go to Panthers game and see ya on Monday.  So now Im just waiting for the GF to get home then it's time to head to Charlotte.

Even get to watch the Iron Bowl. 

 

I know....anticlimactic right.

 

BTW....the "Honesty is the best policy" mantra worked the best.

 

 

Thumbs up dude. Glad it all came together for you.

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.

 

Your the one who committed first ..... I say impress the boss and enjoy the Panthers' W whether your there or not....

Saw this after the fact and glad you decided to do what you did.  But next time if you're even THINKING about lying to your boss about showing up, I'd recommend that you not give details such as "Asheville" and "new job" etc.... Bosses read forums too!

 

PS I live in Asheville, and it's a SMALL town.... :) ...just sayin'

 

Go Panthers!!
