The Question Club
I have been planning a trip for months to see my best friend, who lives five hours away. We have not seen each other in almost six months. She lost her mother to cancer in July, and I wasn't able to be there then, so this trip -- well, it's really important to both of us. I'm supposed to be leaving on November 13, for four days.|
Now, I put in a request to get those four days off from work about six weeks ago (once the dates for the trip had been finalized.) I was supposed to be off that Saturday and Sunday anyway, as the call centre where I work is closed every second weekend. So really, I just asked for Thursday and Friday off.
Two days ago, a new memo came down from management informing us that as of November 14, we are going to be open every weekend. Which means that, hey, we're going to be open the weekend I'm supposed to be leaving on my trip. I also have not received confirmation as of yet that I've gotten the time off that I asked for.
What would you do, TQC, in my situation? Should I keep hounding my supervisor until I get a definitive answer on my time off? If I don't *get* the time off, should I a) be a good little worker bee and just show up (although I will be practically homicidal with rage); b) just go on the fucking trip and say "fuck it" to work, because I fucking planned this trip and put in for the time off in plenty of damn time; or c) just say "fuck it", quit my retarded job and go on the trip anyway?
I gotta say, I'm so pissed at the possibility of not being able to go on this trip that I'm leaning towards C. But I'd like to get some input from unbiased people.
