Stabbed in the heart
 
This morning my VP smugly tells me he sent me a meeting for a supper meeting/dinner on Thursday night. I'm so freaking pissed about it. Now I have to record the game and turn off my phone so I don't get any score alerts. God damnit I'm mad.

Was supposed to go to my buddies watch party... Guess that shit won't fly.

That sucks! I'm in a similiar boat, but not as bad. I've got an all day meeting and with the 6pm (5pm where I am) start time and an hour commute I'll be getting home sometime in the 2nd quarter.

Wow. That's really too bad. Watch out, someone may drop a score on you during the meeting just for spite.

The crappy thing is I am looking for a job and am hoping for an interview this week. If that's the case I might get the one day stomach bug on Thursday.

My VP is a Mizzou fan so he just can't grasp the importance of football.

I would have guessed Clemson fan and he did it purely out of spite, go figure. Maybe he is a football fan and still pissed about last years game.

I found out late last week that I have to travel on biz this week. Leave today and return (you guessed it) THURSDAY afternoon. Plane lands at 5:30 scheduled but I live 1.5 hours from the airport. REDRUM, REDRUM!

You guys need to work on planning. Take a long weekend or just the day off in advance. Too many things can go wrong.

Yep. I've had Thursday and Friday off since they announced the game. No brainer to me with Labor Day on Monday. Hello 5 day weekend.

Dear VP,

I was up all night with explosive diarrhea.

Would you still like me to attend the Dinner Function this evening?

Please let me know ASAP,

DVR the game, that way when you get home you can watch it from the start and fast forward all the commercials. You should catch up by the 3rd qtr.

If I get another job offer this week then this is eerily similar to the email I will send. Shit, I might even sign it as "Cockypantherfan"

Cpf, I've seen his type before; he's gonna be a long-term PITA. If you decide to fight fire with fire, here are a few potential permanent solutions:
1) poison
2) hitman
3) dead mule head in his bed
4) shotgun wedding

OP's choice, of course, and good luck solving your dilemma.

Yeah, it sucks here on the west coast. Game starts at 3 pm PST. Thankfully, it's my work from home day on Thursday so the TV will be on while I finish up work. I'm not sure I will get much done after 3 pm.

I'm expecting everyone who says that one should choose football over loved ones (ex.; weddings) to also come out and say one should also choose football over work

Unless you believe it goes...
Work > Football > Family

Which would be...odd.
