Gotta love favoritism wherever you go. Looks like you didn't kiss enough ass, OP. Happy birthday to your daughter though! At least she has a parent willing to make sacrifices on her special day.

yeah, getting fired proves how much she is loved? I'm sure the kid would much rather have her parent at home, instead of having food on the table

who gives a shit. you broke a rule, you'll suffer the consequences. you should stop caring about your fellow colleagues and improve your performance.

I agree, two wrongs don't make a right, and there is always favoritism, deal with it and don't always expect to get special priveleges. Besides you were probably a shitty employee if he has to enforce that rule. YDI

Couldn't agree more. Also if you are going to pull a sicky, who makes it that obvious? If you need AL and you don't think you are going to get it, don't ask. Go ill the day BEFORE the event and come back the day after. Say you had D & V and you're sorted. Particularly with all the norovirus going around.

You guys are all dicks you expect him to go to work even though it's his daughters birthday he wants to be there for her the fact that he let himself get fired on occasion. Means he has the balls to raise a child

Am I the only one who thinks that taking a day off for childs birthday completely stupid? I've had to work on MY OWN birthday let alone someone else's (which I'm sure most people do). It's one thing to spend time with your kids but it's a different ball game when you have to risk your career for a few extra hours with em. Just my .02

Ok. Scenario #2. Skip work and get fired. Having no money and no more job, your family lives on the streets. Sounds extreme I know, but plausable nonetheless. BTW nice run-on sentence above poster, you seem quite educated.

1) Were you really fired for ditching work once? I suspect you've pulled this before. 2) Why the hell didn't you just request the day off? 3) The fact that your boss' favorite employee got away with it doesn't make it right. YDI.

Lawsuit for what? OP broke a rule he was aware of and suffered the consequences. What would he sue for - the other guy to get fired too? Besides, there might have been circumstances around the other employee's absence that he is unaware of (doctor's note maybe?).

OP - Id fire you too if I was the boss. Rather than being upfront about it being your daughters birthday and requesting annual leave or asking if you could make up the time you took off work, you chose to lie and call in sick. Maybe the so called favourite employee negotiated a day off by choosing not to get paid for that day or choosing to work extended hours to make up the time and that would be why they got to have the day off. The fact that you are so focussed on them means that you probably arent concentrating on your own job as you should be. No one wants to work with a whiney bitchy person who complains about others all the time.

Reality_bites you're absolutely right. It's not as if the daughters birthday counts as "unexpected circumstances". The OP had a whole year to tell their boss- "Hey I'd like this day off, can we arrange something?", but instead they lied about being sick and left their boss short staffed.
