I’ve been known to ditch out of work now and again for a special event. And by special event, I mean day drinking with some friends who happen to be in town or spending a whole day in bed wondering why I thought drinking multiple bottles of wine on a Sunday was a good idea. For those occasions, I either call in sick or take one of my precious vacation days. But one Texas woman took an unusual route to getting the day off – she asked an NFL star to write her a note to get her excused from work. And the best part? He did.

Ashlee Sanchez from Brownsville, Texas bought tickets to the J.J. Watt Charity Classic, a softball game that benefits the J.J. Watt Foundation which provides funding for after-school athletic programs. Unfortunately, Ashlee was scheduled to work on Friday at a new job, so she wasn’t going to attend because she wasn’t comfortable asking for time off so soon after she started. So she sent J.J. this tweet:

And to her surprise, she got this tweet back about five hours later:

And what did Ashlee’s boss do?

Everyone in this situation is pretty cool. Now, do you think I can get Roger Goodell to write me a note for my 8:00 a.m. Friday meeting so I can stay up to watch the draft Thursday night?

There really did used to be 2NOTBrokeGirls, but since one of them spent all of her money on shoes and vodka, there's now just one (financially stable) J, who is too lazy to change her user name. J spends her free time saving the world, one sorority girl at a time (usually while wearing yoga pants), questioning why she decided to go to graduate school, and documenting her love of all things cheese related. You can ask her anything you want about football, using your boobs to get what you want, and pizza at @2NOTBrokeGirls on Twitter or
