SO and I are moving Tuesday week. I had tried to arrange someone to work for me for that day (I have applied for a second day that week which won’t require me to get a replacement), but no one can do it! What am I going to do?!
We’ve been 1 staff member down before, and coped just fine (well, we had to!). If I can’t have that day, we won’t get moved, we won’t get our current place cleaned in time and will have to pay another week’s rent on it! (It’s all paid up till move out day).
Should I just apply anyway, and send my supervisor an email explaining that while I tried to arrange cover, I couldn’t get anyone, but that I’ve exhausted all options and require that day off? I’m hoping they’ll be compassionate! I always arrange all other time off around what’s happening at work, so it’s not like I skip out when I’m needed the most. But this is a special circumstance and we are on a time limit. I feel really annoyed that head office decided that we only require the bare minimum staff on any given day, and our busiest time is Feb-late Oct – this wasn’t our decision.
