Today, I lost my job for taking an unauthorized vacation. I just got married and requested time off for the wedding and honeymoon months ago; it was approved then. They forgot, and then got angry because I didn't remind them. I did remind them, the day before I left. FML

It would be even worse if your husband was your boss. In case anyone's wondering, I am a threadjacker and proud of it.

I just hope that he got an email about it or else it would be difficult to prove that his vacation was approved.

Hehe, wonder what his job was....tsk, tsk. His boss must be senile or forgetful.

Yet your to stupid to read that they said they did not get reminded.

66. What does the last sentence before FML say?

IvantheGrinch 5

They forgot and got mad at me for not reminding them.

75- Do you have some mental disease? The last sentence says he reminded them the day before he left. Or are those too many sentences for your handicapped brain.

61 Even the grinch had a heart. It just took til the end of the movie to find it. I'm sure u got some kindness in u:)

Read his page he's being an idiot on purpose don't give in he wants to be a troll.

Guess it wasn't meant to be. You should sue^ or move on

Take a shit on your bosses desk... Like a boss!!

me too :P

Yeah I agree with you 1. I'm sure op could show the emails he exchanged with his boss about taking off of work.(If that is how op did it)

Why would anyone at his work vouch for him if he sued. (Possible lay offs in successful and not to mention pissed boss for ratting on the company).

im sorry but 21 what is your bio saying?

Epsilonyx 15

111, not necessarily. That said, if it did happen, I'm sure someone there would have adequate morals and would stick up for an ex-employee. My mom was in a similar situation before. Regrets nothing.

111 the bosses may be pissed but they wouldn't do anything about it unless they are looking to get sued again there are laws against that type of stuff but yes there could be layoffs if the company doesn't have enough money afterwards

hey 21 im a penguin and i wear A tux on tuxedo night, just ask Ted,

#111 if they have layoffs, I can understand but if IF they still had enough money to pay and just fired them for helping sue the company, they would get sued again.

Your grammar is terrible.

Your gramma is terrible.

I have my money on this person being asian

If you're Australian it is spelt grammar. Not everyone is American.

It's spelled grammar in America also...

22- I imagine your Singapore grammar is top notch then?

To 71 - 22 is from the US, how is Singapore even related to that?

On the bright side, at least she's married :D

Did you read the FML? Just read the first 5 letters and you'll see what's wrong with your comment.

Epsilonyx 15

"Today"?

Llama_Face89 33

8- first five letter? T-O-D-A-Y. Doesn't really tell me anything. :P

You know what I meant

He meant, first five words

leogirl95 12

Yeah, because trying to spend time and going on vacations with your spouse ruins your life.

and then become homeless

And you need to tell the good people of FML this why?

doesnt matter had sex

If you just told someone, then you're probably screwed. Always make sure your vacation plans are recorded somewhere so it's not just your word against theirs. Good luck in your marriage and job search.

It's their fault. I don't know how they can blame you. What was your job, btw?

You should have reminded them. God dammit OP!

Oops. Forgot to add the sarcastic font...

You should make that.I don't know how that kind of thing works,but you could make a font and copyright? it(I know nothing about things like this,if it's possible go for it!) then sell it(Cheap,you'll sell more.50¢-$5.00 max) as a program you download that merely adds a program to generate the font,but if you go through with this,try to make the font compatible with a multitude of websites(Especially big ones like Facebook and YouTube.) Your font will either be a huge hit and universally known or be a big waste of time and money...
