25, depends what you look for. I personally think that where I live, BC, is the most beautiful and perfect place in the world for me, and I wouldn't want to live anywhere else. But some people would rather live in a place like New York and that's cool too.

6- "If you already have the time scheduled off and approved by superiors". If that's the case, no, the boss cannot fire OP for a no show.

In Canada , we have a 3 month probationary period where an employer my terminate employment at any point, for any reason.. Even if the only reason is they don't like you , I don't know if its like that in the land down under though and if OP tried to schedule the time off during this period.. Just pointing it out:$

The boss just canceled the vacation. That would be a no show. Nowhere did OP say anyone else approved it. Vacations get canceled all the time. Suck it up or get fired.

71- I don't know about other places of employment, but where I work if you have the hours to cover and you have the time already scheduled off, no one can force you to change plans nor can they cancel it. They can ask but that's as far as it goes if you don't want to change your plans. If OP is an intern or even on probation like someone else said it would be different, my view of the FML is that OP has been employed there for some time already.

Considering almost 70% of my friends are either Canadian or Australian, I can assure you it does come up on occasion, even if just jokingly. I don't see why such phrases need to be limited to Canadians or Australians, I find they come in handy quite often, eh?


I'm Canadian, and usually only say "eh" in jest. I do, however, use "hey" a lot (especially to form a question, as in, "That's different, hey?"), which often sounds like "eh", so I get how it would sound like I use it all the time. I'm sure I'm not the only Canadian that does that, either...

I have 6 family members who live in Canada, and one of them was born and raised in America, and all of them seriously use the term eh quite commonly. No big deal, it's just like Americans saying dude or man or something along those lines.

Having a family from Newfoundland, I've noticed that it's most common in Newfies. Words like "eh," "by" (rather than "boy,") and "buddy" come up quite often.
