Tomorrow is my DD's birthday party. DH requested to have off of work tomorrow a month ago, he found out last week he didn't get it off. He has called every coworker possible to see if they could take the shift or trade shifts, no one can. DH hasn't called out in about 5 weeks and he has a LOT of PTOs and he has to be off for DD's birthday. Her party is at a restaurant and we only have one car so if DH has to work, I have no way to get to the party and there is no one who I can ask to drive us (everyone coming to the party already has their car too full to take me, DD and DS or has already told me they will either have to show up late or leave early) so if he doesn't get off work, we will have to cancel DD's birthday party, she is only 5 . Do you think it's reasonable that he calls off work tomorrow? I don't see how he could get in trouble for it since he has the PTOs and he rarely calls off work (he called off 5 weeks ago because I was in preterm labor). Dh is concerned he will get in trouble though. What would you do?Answer Question

At this point, it looks like you will have to wait until Sunday when he gets his schedule to find out what day, you can have her party on. Your guests should understand the circumstances.

Also, what about a taxi? Or other public transportation?

Does he have Monday off? I would move the party to Monday then (or another day next week that he knows he has off).
