I'm a senior in high school, and my prom is tomorrow. Well, not my school's prom, the prom I'm going to, which is at a different school. But that's unnecessary information. Anyways, I didn't learn about the date early enough to take it off work. So I just hoped and prayed that I wouldn't work tomorrow night. But I do, as my schedule told me two weeks ago. I've been more or less frantically searching for anyone to take my shift at work and now, the day before prom, i've come to the realization that I have no one else to ask. So this leaves me in a very uncomfortable situation: do I call in sick tomorrow for work and go to prom, or do I cancel on my friends and go to work? There's so many factors for me to consider. One: it's a Friday, and I'll still have to go to work the next day, which is damn suspicious. Also, my work will then be a person short, which makes me feel incredibly guilty. Two: my friends have already purchased my prom ticket for me and, while I'll pay them back, that's $20 I would prefer not to waste. I also asked my best friend to prom and he'll be upset if I can't go. Not to mention the rest of my friends who will be expecting me. I have a responsibility to my job, I know, but I also won't have much time with my friends this coming summer and I'm moving out of state for college in August. I'm only able to see them every other weekend or so since I moved about an hour away last year. But, still, my job.... Advice?
