Today, I submitted a vacation request to my manager and it was approved. I came back from lunch and was informed that I have been let go. FML

@4. Just because its called a vacation request doesn't necessarily mean you are taking a vacation. I was going out of state for my grandfathers funeral. My manager approved the time off. The pink slip came from a little higher up apparently. I'm sure it was just a matter of bad timing in the end but either way I can't say that I ever saw it going down that way.

well wait there's probably a lot more to the story. you were probably a crumby worker that didnt do much anyway and was on the verge of being fired, and then you ask for a vacation when thousands and thousands are being fired, and it just happens that your boss needs to let some people go. i can undersand that.
