She went through the proper channels, she already spent her money for her tickets, she was already given the time off and they couldn't replace her for a week? well guess now they will have to find a permanent replacement for her.... Good for her ! She has enough balls to stand up for what she believes in, something most people in this country are severely lacking!!!!
I'll have to stop commenting now. I have to catch my flight to England. HA HA
The royal family should make her their guest in gratitude over someone giving up everything just to see the wedding.
People like her do have a mental condition called Obsessive-compulsive Disorder. OCD occurs in a spectrum from mild to severe, but if severe and left untreated, can destroy a person's capacity to function at work, at school, or even in the home. They will take almost any action to fulfill their craving......including quitting their job.
And you got your degree from where, Dr.?
I remember asking for time off to go to an out of state business seminar. My boss (mr. know-it-all) told me I couldn't take the time off because he was going to 'save me from myself'. I told him in that case I was goving him my resignation (one month in advance) However, the day before what was to be my last day, HE changed his mind and asked me if I would make sure my work was caught up and would I be back to work the next monday??? Employers treat employees like crap. If this lady gave proper notice she shouldn't have been fired. Sometimes, you really have to stand up for what is important to you.
I wonder if she would have quit her job to go to a friends wedding?
Maybe, if she'd already bought the airline tickets? If I was told I could have the time off (the article doesn't really say that though, does it) and scheduled it and bought my tickets, I'd be tempted to quit my job if the company pulled this on me. Especially if my husband had a good job. Actually, DH would be the first one to encourage me to tell them to shove it.
Type your comment hereCongrats Miss Cunningham. 34 years ago I had a similar situation albeit, it wasn't a royal wedding. I applied to take a test for a Real Estate Brokers Licence. Whem boss found out he said, If you take the test I will throw you the hell out of here. Well here it is and I'm still kicking and he is out of business. You go girl, we don't need ass holes like them. Good luck.
Good for this lady. I'm happy for her. Her employer can suck it.
I think that is a stupid decision on her part when so many are trying to hold on to their jobs this dumb woman is giving up her job to watch a wedding that is being totally overplayed! Who gives a &#@* that they are getting married? I mean honestly it's not that big of a deal!
