Today, I received a call from a company attempting to steal me away. Flattered, I told them I liked my job and the answer was no. When I told my boss, he said they're thinking about laying me off and I should've taken the job. FML

Some people have no choice. Some places make it a "first come first serve" deal when asking for holidays off. Also nursing homes, rehabilitation facilities and hospitals are a few places where workers need to be. They can't just close those places so their employees can be with family. Plus tomorrow is Black Friday, stores need to prepare.

Dwight: Where does it say that he's working Thanksgiving Day? "Today" refers to whatever day the event happened. These submitted FMLs have to first be judged/ approved by a big group of moderators(?) before being posted. That doesn't happen in an hour or two.

I think you can call them back and tell them you reconsidered their offer. I don't see why it wouldn't be worth a shot. Sure beats being jobless and going through the motion to find a new one.

I guess they wanted to steal you away because you look good in their corporate colours and you're good at rescuing their customers from bags of pinecones.

Always take interviews even as practice even and especially if you love your job.
Then when you are gonna be hired then tell your boss and see if they want to fight for you.
In the future.
