I do not believe any job should come before your family. To be at a job for 2 yrs and not be able to take time off when you want to is insane. I worked for a hospital that forbid employees to take time off if they had no PTO.....I explained to my manager that I was not concerned if I would not be paid for my Vacation, but I would be taking my 2 wks off (which had been booked for 6 months). I was then told that I would be considered "sick" and I would need a Doctors Excuse before returning back to work. Whatever!!!!!!!!! :angryfire :angryfire :angryfire
After enjoying a 2 wk cruise around the caribbean (sp?) which was so needed, I went back to work (with my Dr's excuse), and turned in my notice (2 wks). My manager could not understand why I was so upset......after excepting my resignation she called me at home the next day to cancel me for my shifts for the weekend saying "census is down, we will not be needing you". this happened for the following weekend also, so needless to say I felt I was being "punished" for standing up for myself.
In this day and age, I feel that whomever you work for you are just an Employee number, and as long as you come into work, do not call off sick, do not complain, do not have an opinion, and do not have a life they (management) leave you alone. Remember, there are always jobs out there, and you only have one family, and one life to make happy memories (sp?).
Go on vacation with your family. :spin: :spin: :spin:
Sorry, just my opinion,
