    Exactly..are they paying you for attending it? Nope most likely not.. so I wouldnt even bother with an excuse Its none of their business. If your boss does have the cheek to bail you up about it just say you believe you were doing the responsible thing since you are working the next day.

    I would totally tell them the truth, and only if they asked. I wouldn't make an excuse about being sick - it puts the onus on you rather than them. If they get ****ty, in reality they are to blame for scheduling such late pick ups from such a long distance.

    Even before my dd came along, I wouldn't have been able to last until 1 or 2am! Especially not after a day of work.

    none of their business. and if they ask well just tell them that 2AM is too late for your child to be woken up. simple. if they don't like it they can go jump. they sound like a-holes. I wouldn't want to be working for people like that.

    I would tell them I left because their party was sh!t. They have no right to ask you any questions about how you do or don't spend your own free time out of work. What the freaking hell?!?

    Juat say personal reasons. They dont need to know that the personal reason was that you didnt like it.

    The truth! Getting your husband to take your son at 2am to pick you up is completely inappropriate. You made an appearance so should be good enough IMO.

    Same as this. Or I just say 'I felt like going home' - who cares what they think?
