Well, first he asks me to come in Monday AM for a presentation when I was scheduled off.

Then, he leaves me a message at home to try to come in Tuesday-also scheduled vacation day. Being a putz I did.

So...total muzzleloader hunting was 1/2 day..but I did tag a doe. :p

Anyhow..I've had Mon/Tues off since FOREVER..and today he tells me he has a meeting in Ct. on Monday, and would I please be "flexible" (what am I, his wife? well..he is 'screwing' me...) and come in on MONDAY!!!!

Ask him if he will wrap your Christmas presents for

you, that you will be working to hard to wrap

them for yourself. Get a little hair on your A$$.

If you give up your time it will only make you mad

and cause you stress. Life is to short. I know

what I'm talking about. I've been five months

recovering from a stomach operation. I'm only 35,

live and eat healthy, not a fanatic, but healthy.

Came as close to dieing as I ever have. Bad

feeling, makes you think what's really important.

Life, family, health and happiness. You can't put a

price tag on any of them. Remember, he can only get

mad at you, it was scheduled and he can't eat you.

Would he come in on his scheduled day off for you?

all in...(a) I needed a job, and this is a really good one.

(b) we're short handed

(c) bonuses are coming up after the first, and he's got a reputation for being fair & generous

(d) I just wish he (the "BOSS") could plan a bit better.....[sad]

woj tell your boss there are hundreds of other employers in nj. I don't understand why you guys that have scheduled vacations let your bosses take them away like that. A boss that does that is not a boss worth working for period.

The guy I worked with Quit on Nov 2 and I had to pick-up most of the slack which totally wiped out my bow season as far as the RUT was concerned. they had me down for SLOBgun too but I said enough is enough!

As that Great Liberal always said while biting his lower lip...."I feel your pain"

Actually my boss called today, told me he realized (from the news) that it was bear season...if I "really" needed to take the day off, OK.

Unfortunately by that time I'd set up 3 meetings...
