Today, with my girlfriend I planned a trip to Bali on this Thursday and we will celebrate Christmas together. Hotel booking done, flight tickets bought, swimsuits packed. I just forgot one thing: tell my boss I'll be on leave till next week. He gave me a new project. The deadline is next Monday. FML
A similar (and much sadder) fml was posted about a woman who had to cancel a family trip to disney world b/c she forgot to tell her boss she was leaving. Point is if something is truely important (like a vacation) TELL YOUR BOSS!!!
Yes, you deserve it but I also think your boss is a dick for giving you a project due Monday after Christmas. Even if you weren't planning a trip out of town, you'd think he would appreciate that you're probably busy this time of year with family and other obligations.
You booked the entire trip w/o making sure you could get the time off from work, this short notice? Sounds like YDI.
You sir, are an idiot for planning a holiday vacation so close to the holiday in question. I bet everything you bought was marked up for idiots just like you. Plan your vacations well in advanced.
