Could work stop my DW from happening?

Recommended Posts

Lucy that sucks I can't imagine not being able to book time off for your wedding, can you call in sick and ask your doctor to give you a note because of your back problems?

 

Oh, off topic did you ever get your dragonfly tat done, I am curious to see it?

I agree with Alyssa put it in writing. A wedding is a life changing event and should rank pretty high for reasons to need off. I think since it's your wedding and your doing it without pay, you should be able to take the days off. did you always have doctor notes for the days you needed off for that?

Holy crap! Same thing almost happened with Chris, as holidays are booked at his work by senority. He basically told them that this is his LIFE we are talking about and he was not going to be at his WORK for those 2 weeks so they'd have to deal with it.

 

Then he wrote his request a little less harshly and they approved it.

 

:P

 

I frickin hate when you give so much of your time to work and they STILL want to be in control of the times you are not there (ie the rest of your life).

 

It's a sad state of affairs sad.gif

Thank you all so much. Ok this is what I put in writing to my Deputy Chief (I am a police officer so it may read a little military or whatever) :

 

Sir,

 

I am sure it is obvious I am getting very low on time off. Since I have been required to take Village holidays (memorial day, Fouth of July and now also the third of July) and holidays for medical procedures because of a lack of sick time I am getting even lower on time then I had ever imagined. As I had told you many months ago I am trying to save my time because I am getting married in Cancun in November (leaving November 3 and returning November 13). Sonia has told me that being allowed to take time off without pay is up to the administration here at the department. So I am sending this email in anticipation of not having the time to take off when November arrives. I have offered to work the Fourth of July weekend in order to save time. I am willing to save time by working weekends or whatever I need to do if that is an option. But if that is not possible then I am requesting permission to take the time off without pay that I need to make up for the time I don't have for my wedding. Thank you in advance.

 

Respectfully Submitted,

Love the suggestion of calling in sick but I only have 8hrs of sick time right now and I am using 2hrs on Friday for another doc appointment. Have I mentioned I love you guys!!! Thank you for the support!!

Oh, wow. I am sorry to hear this.

They have known for awhile now that you are getting married, right?

I would just explain to them that you have to be in Mexico a couple of days before, as required by the country, in order to make it legal. I think you will be fine, honestly, but can understand your stress.

If they still don't budge, worse case scenario, maybe you can do your legal wedding in th states, and then do the symbolic one in Mexico, like a lot of us do. (I am also doing this) and we will only arrive 2 days before the big day.

Good luck & keep us posted!

Lucy, I changed your email a little. I thought it was a little to wordy and not to the point.

 

What do you think of this?

 

Sir,

 

I am requesting permission to take time off without pay for my wedding. I will be leaving for my wedding on November 3, 2008 returning November 13, 2008.

 

Due to medical procedures my vacation time is quickly depleting. I am willing to work holidays, such as the Fourth of July in order to accrue additional vacation time.

Would getting legally married here first be an option? If you are jsut having a symbolic ceremony in MX, I don't thnk you need to be there all those days in advance...

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
