    I'm sooooooooooooooo PISSED right now.

    Here's the background of the situation:
    This is my first day back to work. I've been off for 4 days. I have 30 days of time off for this year, I've used 1 so far. I did not call work at all since I left on Friday for my surgery. I emailed a few co-workers, including my assistant, who helped get my work done on my days off. I checked voicemail every day and responded to things from home. I have obviously NOT been myself. I went for a massage on Weds and told my friend at work about it. I mailed out my wedding invitations on Saturday which have just been sitting in my apartment, ready to go for two months.

    My boss calls me into her office this morning when she came in. Tells me the way I have been acting this week is immature. Continues to say it is company policy to call when I will be absent from work; this I know and I thought she'd be a little bit understanding with my situation. I explain that I have been avoiding all phone calls, from friends AND family and have been unable to communicate really with anyone this week. I have left my apartment a grand total of TWO times in the past 4 days. I am very depressed. I am dealing with BOTH the death of my father and the death of my baby.

    Then she tells me I was very close to being let go after my actions this week. At this point I'm crying (WHICH I HATE TO DO AT WORK, ESPECIALLY IN FRONT OF MY BOSS) and pleading my case that I was not capable to communicate with anyone, which I why I did not come into work this week. My work got done; nothing happened while I was gone. She says to me 'you should hear the chatter around here. About you going for a massage and getting wedding stuff done.' and I say 'yes, I got a massage. My friends got me a gift certificate to help make me feel better and yes, for one hour I was able to forget about everything.'

    Then she tells me that I am NOT getting paid for the 4 days I didn't come into work this week. I again argued (between sobs) that I could not call in; I was literally unable to. That I was not ready to walk by babies at work and work very closely with 2 pregnant women. She just repeats again that my time off will be unpaid and that I was VERY close to being let go.

    I am such a fool to think that she would be AT ALL understanding about this matter. Oh, and let me just say that I work for a very small company - there are EIGHT of us here - it's not like this is a huge, multinational organization! It's f-ing child care for crying out loud!!!! I'm so mad. And angry. And upset. And I just can't freaking believe she won't let me use the paid time off I do have for this.

    Am I over-reacting or is she a CRAZY BIATCH?!?!?!?

        OMG, Heidi, that is INSANE. If you have the vacation time, I think you are entitle to use them! Is there an HR department there you can speak to about it? That just doesn't seem right and you DO NOT need this from her! I am angry for you!

              Heidi..

              You are not overreacting at all. If anything, you boss is "underreacting (I think I just made that word up). I think your situation is a very sensitive one, and that you should be alotted whatever time you need to cope with your loss. I agree, what a B*itch!! Don't let her get to you, you need to focus on healing yourself. Your body needs nurturing, and it was a good thing to go to a massage. Your body has been through alot both physically and mentally. Try to forget about your boss, and just go on with your day. Some people are just born shallow. <--- That's for your boss..

                that would be fabulous, thank you!

                Oh, and Carly my boss also told me that it was the HR person (one of 8 of us in the office) who suggested I get the days unpaid. You can bet that'll be the last time I talk to her. Just a polite exterior is all she'll be getting from me from here on out.

                6 more months........... I'm only here for 6 more months...............I can do it. Maybe.

                  Well at least there in an end in site. Where do you go in 6 months? I would totally start a new job hunt TODAY! That is bullshit. Employees have rights and I don't think they have the right to tell you AFTER the fact that you are going to be unpaid.

                    Is there someone else you can talk to about your paid time off?

                    In all honestly I guess I can see some small point by them saying you or someone should have called and told them you weren't coming in. Are they saything they thought you were a no show for four days?

                      It would seem to me that she's breaking some kind of human resource laws or something! I don't know much about these things, but if it's worth looking into! Is there someone else over her that you can discuss this with? Someone in your human resources department or something?

                      I think I'm going to do a little research and see what I find...
                      I think the B*** should be held accountable for dispicable business practices!
