Totally NWR - Just need to vent!

Good morning ladies!


Just wanted to vent! My niece graduates June 7. This graduation means the world to me and the family because my oldest sister had five kids and unfortunately none of them graduated from high school. My mom is deceased and this is her first grandchild graduating. For those that have been with me through my journey, you know my father suffers from mental illness and he is beyond happy that he will get a chance to see his oldest grand child graduate. Here is the vent. Me and my brother in law work at the same place and why my boss asked what time was graduation because she don't think the owner will approve me and him the time off. ARE YOU KIDDING ME????? WE DON'T EVEN WORK IN THE SAME DEPARTMENT! OUR JOBS HAVE NOTHING TO DO WITH ONE ANOTHER!!!! I am beyond livid. Everyone knows my nieces are like my daughters and it will just kill me not to be at her graduation. Plus, my father does not drive, so I was picking him up to take him and I made reservations for us to all go out to have lunch afterwards. I helped raised that child, through the good times and the bad and to see her graduate is such a proud moment. I told my boss that if it came down to it, just give my brother-in-law the day off, that is his child. I am hurt, pissed off and want to beat her and the owner in the face. What is really bad, she only does this when it comes to me and my brother-in-law. I need a new job.

Probably not pay me for the day and go to the doctor to get a note. It is always like this when it comes to me and him, but their are brother and sister's that work here in my brother in law department. They are not treated the same way. It is time for me to find another job. Then watch they act all surprised.

That is ridiculous. If you are not in the same department how can they justify this? If you have legit vacation time to use, can you take this to HR? Maybe before that point I would explain to your boss how important this is, and make her explain why it matters if your brother-in-law is also off. Be respectful, as I know you will, but I wouldn't let this go. Hugs dear!!

Thanks Elise! It means so much to me! 


At Sam - Guess who the HR department is - THE OWNER! They know how important this is to me! They all came to my mother's funeral and they have supported me through many things that I have been through, but since my brother-in-law got hired, they always act like we are up to no good. I know the owner and how her brain works, she is going to act stupid for a couple of weeks and then maybe relent. Worse case scenario, I hope, is if I can find out the time, I can go and just come back to work.

That is so ridiculous!  Why in the world would that even affect anything?  That's so wrong Tressy, I'm sorry!  I know this means the world to you and I hope it works out so that you can go to her graduation.  


Is there any way you can go around or above her or even to her and explain how important this is for you????


I truly believe some people enjoy making others miserable.


I am praying for you!

Thanks Nicole! Well all the prayers must have worked because it got approved! I guess they heard through the grapevine I would be seeking employment elsewhere. Lol.
