i would just tell my boss i can't work that day - it's just a three hour shift - but i have to take tuesday march 22 to tuesday march 29 off to visit my dad in texas. i tried switching shifts with someone who is working the same shift on a different day, but she can't switch to a day that would work for me. my friend wants me to just call in sick that day or something but i know my boss doesn't like people taking time off, so i don't want to push it since i'm already taking a week off.
what would you do, tqc?
(oh also, if it matters, i'm quitting this job and moving in about a month)
