Honestly, I would quit. She sounds like a petulant child anyway. I know, easier said than done, but seriously, start filling out job applications now. What’s next? God forbid something terrible happens to a loved one. 

Talk to your HR department, and check your contract. I wouldn’t necessarily file a complaint with HR right away, but I would check how many vacation days I have, and who technically has the authority to approve them. Then, I would probably write a very polite email to my boss saying “I have X amount of vacation days right now. I will be using Y amount from Date A – Date B.  Best, Mrs. S”

If it make you feel any better though, I have a feeling my boss is going to do the same thing to me about a wedding coming up in March. One of my best friends in the world is getting married in Vegas and I’m willing to go from Central Asia, have plenty of vacation days, but have been waiting for weeks for her to get back to me so I can book my ticket. It’s really frustrating, and yes, I’ve also thought about just giving notice for this.

My last Manager told me I couldnt have the day off to go to a friends wedding.  I told him straight out, give me the day off or I am calling in sick.  He gave me the day off.

I am lucky with my new workplace.  I only just started and I told them first thing that I need time off in September and explained why.  I have been told its not an issue.  But I can’t put the form in until the next roster has been done up which will cover that month.  Becaise I work rotating shifts, at this point I don’t know what days I will be working across that period.  So anyway, we will wait and see what happens when the time comes.  I will be lodging that request as soon as the roster comes out so that someone else doesn’t beat me to the punch.

She is pissed off because we told her she can’t invite people willy-nilly to the wedding, and this is her way of reacting.

Who does she think she is? And is she crazy? Ugh! What right does she have AT ALL to invite anyone to another persons wedding?

I second SutSip! Talk to HR, find out about vacation day procedure, see if there is anyone above her you might be able to plead to, update your resume, consider other jobs…

I can’t possibly believe that you want to work for this woman any longer after this insanity. *hugs* Good luck to you!

I don’t have anything to say except, she sucks!! I’m sorry she’s ruining this for you, but I’m happy you have the attitude that you’ll make up for it with mini-moons.. don’t let her get to you! As far as putting her the furthest away, etc. could you just uninvite her?

My story is less horrible but basically I found out I would be like 5 hours short from being able to take a honeymoon so I asked my boss if I could *cough* call in sick (I have plenty of sick time just not leave time) and she straight up told me no. I was like oh, okay well I guess I won’t have a honeymoon? And she was like ohh, I’m sorry, that sucks.    !!!!

@Cariad:  She’s still invited to the wedding?!  I would tell her she can’t come at this point!  she’s just a miserable cow and shouldn’t be there to bring you down.  AND I would tell her “If we don’t get time off after the wedding then we will just call in sick”, I mean, at least for Monday… But I would just call in sick for X amount of days and go on a honeymooon.  Screw her.  But I would probably quit because there has to be some better job out there, even if it pays less.

She sounds controlling. Tell her no, and take your honeymoon- get a new job without someone to ruin the happiest moments of your life.
