This is the delemIa I face... prom is coming up and I decided that I will be going to it. BUT, the problem is, it is on a saturday at a place 45 minutes from my house. It starts at 6PM. I don't get off work until 5:30. I have to go home, shower, change, then drive there. You also have to be there by 7 PM, or you are denied entrance. Since I just got back to work and my boss has a problem with giving people time off I am scared to ask him "Can I leave an hour early from work to go to prom"? That just sounds weak and lazy. I am however thinking of just waiting until maybe that thursday before, since that is pay day and say "my great uncle pasted away, can I leave an hour early on saturday to go to the funeral home"
What do you guys think I should do?
keep in mind, I have already paid the $20 deposit and bought a suit for the occasion.
