Pit I need some serious help, please no crap responses like " fap ROFL" or anything else.

So heres how its going down....

I have to jam with a hopeful new band, a great one I might add, 100x better than I expected. they chose me to jam with and see if I'm really great to have as a new addition.

now heres the problem. My stepdad just told me I had to go out job hunting tomorrow with him. And you know, the **** thing is, the jam session is in Baytown, about 45 minutes to and hour away. Chances are, Steve won't drive me there after being around town.

bad news is, we've been planning this for over 2 weeks, and I don't think I can let them down with out giving a bad impression of me, or that I will do that alot.

Please help pit

I've even thought about lying, saying I've been in a car accident, but that could backfire horribly.

Tell your stepdad you feel too ill to go out, then just kinda sneak out?

Oh and you know you're gonna get joke replies, if you say not to it just spurs 'em on.

My plan- Tell your dad. He'll understand if you REALLY want this. You can always go hunting, but some chances only come once in a lifetime.

OR

Go hunting with your dad and tell yourself family is more important. Your choice, not ours.

BTW

Prepare for pit bashing.

You could just ask your dad to rearrange the job hunting trip and go to the jam session instead...

It seems really simple to me.

ok here it is

its a matter of whats more important to you. you love this band and your music more than anything, than do everything necessary to achieve what you feel is necessary. if getting a job means more and making your step dad happy as well, than dont do anything, it wasnt worth in your heart to play with them, go get the job. matter of integrity and passion, your choice.

leave early, get a butt load of applications, then go and jam with the band. How hard is that?

And yes, Steve is my stepdad.
