Today, I was promised that I wouldn't have to work late because I had tomorrow off for my birthday. My coworkers decided that none of them want to work late, and that I could do it. So I am stuck working late and have to come in on my birthday, which I had requested off. FML

If you have requested time off, and its booked and in writing, don't come in. If your coworkers are meant to show up for that shift, they will get in trouble, not you. Be firm with your reply to management when they ask you to work, "I have already made plans, I cannot cancel them." And if he asks what they are "It's personal, and thats why I requested the time off." As for the day before leaving early, that is verbal, and your coworkers/boss are butts for reversing their choice to let you go early. Verbal means nothing. Written means everything!

Wow that’s some bullshit. Talk to your manager and tell them you had already made plans as you requested that day off and it got approved so you’re not responsible for the shift. He or she should get someone else to cover or do it him or herself. Don’t be a pushover you put it in in advance

unpopular opinion. your birthday isnt important. mines not important. life sucks. but the fact is you requested off and were approved. fuck management. if it is in writing dont show up. also get a copy as proof.

Or you take the day you booked off and let them get in trouble They wouldn't do it for you
