    OK guys, here we go. Brad Paisley is going to be here on Thursday night, two days from now, I've got to go out of town on business that day/night.

    Give me some excuses (good ones) to tell the boss so I don't have to go.:lol:

    1.) Tell him you're going to be sick on that day.
    2.) Hit him on the head. Really, really hard.
    3.) Tell him you just don't feel like going anymore.
    4.) Cry like a school girl.

    Nobody's gonna make you go out of town on business when you've got an arrow shot through your head.

    You could call the business people you are meeting direct and say that something has come up and you may not make it. Then you see what flexibility they have in the schedule, if so then tell the boss that they called YOU and changed the dates.

    Tell the boss you are eating seafood the night before and call in sick the next day. Looks much more plausible than a surprise "I'm not coming in"

    first, be very certain your boss isn't a closet telecaster addict who frequents this site when he's supposed to be working on your yearly reviews...

    "Something suddenly came up" that always seems to work on sit-coms.

    Have kids? "I'm sorry, boss, but my kid's in trouble at school and this was the only day I could schedule a meeting with the principal, the guidance counselor, and the teacher." Maybe throw in the special ed. teacher and hint that they may be evaluating the kid for emotional disorders or learning disabilities.

    That covers you down the road too. When you have a couple of bad days at work people will assume it's a problem with your emotionally disturbed kid and when you snap back they'll say what a trooper you were to handle it so well.
