1bassoon Posted July 24, 2008 Share Posted July 24, 2008 Background: Dh was/is a trained musician - taught school, did gigs on the side. Lost his job a year ago. Was recently hired by a health insurance co. (go figure!), now works M-F in Chattanooga and is home only from Fri. p.m. til Sun. p.m. Tonight he called and told me that he has a chance to play West Side Story for a local theater co. - they need a sub for next weekend. He thought about asking his boss to work from home on his laptop on Friday. Then, he could drive from Chatt. to the gig Thursday, come home around midnight/1 a.m. Work from home Friday. Gig Fri night, Sat matinee, Sat night, home late. Gig Sunday matinee. Return to Chatt. What do I say? He asked me for my opinion. The $$ is pretty good - around $450 for the weekend. We could use it. But - I know what that would mean. He'd be tired, exhausted, not pleasant, and mostly gone that weekend. I know that what I say holds tremendous say with dh. I have to be careful - if he really feels like this would help our family, I need to "take one for the team", kwim? Plus, who knows when he'll have a chance to do this kind of thing again, now that he's taken the Corporate Plunge.
