Today, I got to explain to my co-worker again why I can't move my "vacation" so she can take hers when she wants. Apparently, in her mind, her seniority at the company trumps my due date. FML
sulitak tells us more :
1. It did take work to get pregnant. 2. I put in for my leave as soon as I found out. It has been on the schedule for 5 months already. 3. She is the SAME position as me, not my superior. She has just held a position at the company for longer. Though, even if it was a vacation for vacation thing, I would still have priority through our company's rules. Seniority get priority to a point. Low man on the totem pole can request days off, then it gets put on the calendar, everyone above them has a month to "override" those days. If it stands for a month with no objections, low man gets their vacation.

Your co-worker is in her own private oblivion and unaware that there are people in the world who have things to do other than cater to her whims. Ignore her, and don't sweat it. She is a special kind of dumbass.

Yes, and telling her to fuck off really is living by your own example... (I do agree with you, but telling her to fuck off is just as lacking in respect as telling a pregnant woman to hold it in another week.)

The nerve of some people. I mean its not like a function that a woman has close to no control over or anything. OP should be more considerate about giving birth to a child. RIdiculous.

Don't do it at her desk, she'll use her seniority to switch desks with you. And with the bed she may be due for a new mattress anyway. Give birth in her car, preferably using the driver's seat somehow.

Due dates are a rough estimate -- they can be several weeks off.

She's put in the years of hard work to earn the seniority to get perks like first pick of vacation days. All you did was get fucked. Back off and hope for the best.
