If This Note Doesn't Convince Your Boss To Let You Watch The U.S. Soccer Game, Nothing Will

Posted: Updated:

Really want to watch the U.S.-Germany game on Thursday, but don't know how you're going to get off work? The U.S. men's soccer team has you covered.

The team's official Twitter feed sent a ready-to-go get-out-of-work note to its one million followers on Wednesday. And, well, it's pretty perfect:

us letter

We also transcribed it in case it's hard to read in its original form format whatever reason:

To whom it may concern:

Please excuse _____________ from work on Thursday, June 26th.

I understand that this absence may reduce the productivity of your workplace, but I can assure you that it is for an important cause. The #USMNT has a critical World Cup game vs. Germany and we will need the full support of the nation if we are to advance to the next round.

By the way, you should act like a good leader and take the day off as well. Go USA!

If your boss doesn't let you root for your country after reading that, well, then maybe you need to find a new boss. The game is at 12 p.m. EST.
