I can't imagine he's happy about it. Her mistake probably cost the company thousands in travel costs and lost work hours. She sent her boss across the country for an event that wasn't there. He will have to repeat the whole process in a week, and will likely be audited for the doubled travel expenses. It will not be fun.
#12: My bosses travel frequently, and I'm being sent out in just over a week as well. I can say with high certainty that OP's boss would have had to jump on a plane back home as no company will pay for what is essentially a free vacation. Besides, being forced away from one's family/work site and waiting for an event a week away could have significant effect on spouses, children, schedules, meetings with other clients, etc.
Well it does depend on circumstance, my mother was sent down to a conference in London, and the first day was cancelled at short notice, she was fairly happy to have a day in which to do as she pleased, paid for by her company. I admit a week is a different scenario entirely, but if it's a nice place the situation isn't as awful
I highly doubt he can afford to be away from work for an extra week. True, his schedule would probably be clear for this week, but all the meetings and appointments for next week will have to be cleared and rescheduled, possibly to this week. Plus, it would probably cost a fortune of company money to stay for an extra week, which they wouldn't allow him to spend on what is essentially a vacation and non work related. Even if he is the owner of the company and is in charge of the money, it would cost a fortune for him to stay an extra week somewhere. Hotels alone usually cost a minimum of $100 a night. Unless he actually decides to take this as his vacation time he will most likely have to come back home, and fly out again next week. I hope he's gently on op, although it's a pretty big and costly mistake. Mistakes do happen.
well hopefully your boss wanted a little vacation across the country :p
Well that's unfortunate, hope he isn't mad about it! Everyone makes mistakes!
