Every year, I go fishing with my buddies on the third weekend in May. Based solely on my memory, I scheduled work on Thursday, When I told my friends I couldn’t leave until Friday, they said “You’re an idiot. We leave every year on Thursday.”
So I had to find someone to take my work schedule. And this is what I sent to convince them to help me. And it worked.
Feel free to use it if you need some help convincing others to help you.
