…for me to have the baby! Nobody likes his boss because he can’t do his job and is a total dubmass. He asked Darling Husband when baby is due, Darling Husband said Nov 11 and the boss asked if we can shoot for October instead. Darling Husband said we don’t really have control over when baby comes. Then boss said that he wants to go on a hunting trip in early November, and since Darling Husband is taking 3 weeks off (already approved) I have to wait to give birth until he gets back so two people aren’t out of the office. Darling Husband told him that he already spoke to who he needed to about taking his 3 weeks off and how we don’t know an exact date and everything was ok. Then boss guy said that Darling Husband and I really need to pick a date for the baby to be born so he can plan his hunting trip. Smh
This guy is ‘technically’ his boss, but the higher ups and even the company owners told Darling Husband that he is not to report to him or go to him for anything, so it’s not like Darling Husband went around talking to him about vacation time and this guy knows that.

Seriously!? Wow. This is horrible- and so hilarious, because his boss is clearly the biggest idiot ever.

What an idiot. I’m pretty sure I’d be straight over to HR if I were your Darling Husband so they can 1) have a record of this jackass asking for the IMPOSSIBLE and 2) have a little “chat” with him about what is and isn’t appropriate in the work place.
I really hope this guy was “joking.” If so, worst sense of humor, ever.

Clearly this guy lives in cuckoo land. Never heard of anything so crazy! Some people should never be able to be in a position of power… the corporate world absolutely infuriates me sometimes. (not sure what your Darling Husband does but his boss sounds like a few of mine over the last few years!)

Fall_In_Love22: ummm I would tell your Darling Husband to not worry about it, being that his vacation is already pre-approved, his “boss” should go ahead and plan his trip. You can’t pick a date bc you don’t know when the baby is going to make his/her grand entrance! It happens when it happens.
People never cease to amaze me!

DreamingMermaid: they are architects. Really makes ya feel safe in buildings huh?
Darling Husband mentioned this conversation to one of the higher ups (a woman, so she’s more understanding) and she couldn’t believe how stupid this guy is and said that’s why Darling Husband should be above this guy. Darling Husband just got promoted to the same level as the boss guy, but since he has more experience than Darling Husband, he’s the ‘boss’.

Fall_In_Love22: this made me laugh….sounds like a man thing to say ‘just have your wife pick a date already’
As long as the people that are important know that ‘boss’ is a dick and your Darling Husband has his time off approved for whenever he needs it that’s all that matters 🙂

Fall_In_Love22: Ask the boss to send his request to him in an email so he can see what he can do. Then show the email to HR.

Fall_In_Love22: This sounds like a non-issue becuase its just completely rediculous… was he kidding? Darling Husband should just laugh it off

ktsteimel: the boss was serious, it’s not the first time he’s brought it up. Darling Husband just blows it off. It’s one of those ‘….what?’ Moments.
