People would think that going into a family business would mean having an easier time, but I find that families expect more, plus it's difficult to come up with reasons or excuses. Also, there isn't that formal relationship where there has to be mutual respect and strict guidelines, meaning OP can be messed around and taken advantage of more due to them being family.
too much missing info to make a proper judgement on this one. how long have you worked for them? how much vacation time are you given? is july a busy season for what ever business you were in? (i work hvac and getting more than a single day off between the end of june and sept without being in the hospital is impossible)
For all we know, op tries taking off constantly or is a bad employee in another way, and this may have just been the final straw. As with almost all FMLs, more information would be helpful, but I also don't want to read someone's life story. So we come here to the comments and have our own little brainstorming on what actually happened. That's where the real fun is. :)
What audacity you have, asking on such short notice. On the plus side, congrats on getting your vacation.
Most loving family on FML yet!
