Dear Experts, I got asked to go to a baseball game next Tuesday after the long weekend. I totally forgot to ask for the day off. I was going to just call in sick, HOWEVER, my friend just told me she heard about someone who was seen on TV at a game after he called in sick and got fired. Now I'm worried. What should I do? I paid for the ticket and it wasn't cheap - so I really want to go. But, I can't risk losing my job either. How can I fix this? Our Twitter Advice Project (T.A.P.) is no longer an active campaign.

For years now, I have seen hustle-culture being glorified, and it frustrates me. The idea of earning respect by overworking yourself isn't healthy. It just isn't. As a small business owner, I fully understand the word hustle. I grind daily. But as human beings, we have limits, so I suggest that we must be intentional with how we hustle.
