I have some confusion regarding my workspace function. This month our organization have a big annual function and I was selected by my team leader to help out for that day. The problem is that 2 days before our function my best friends have a marriage and he has invited me. I need to go some days beforehand and I have to journey 1000km.
But as the point of view of my office party I want to become the point of attraction towards my all seniors (I am fresher) in the arrangement of function so I don't want to miss the participation and shows some my extra skills in arrangement. But to go for leave before the party and not participation in the making all the things like planning, arrangement of that day function, does this give fine impression on my seniors?
Should I go for leave or not?
