    I would think any parent, even an in law, would want you to interview over a birthday celebration. Jobs pay the bills, birthdays don’t.

    I think it’s completely unreasonable and selfish for you SO to be upset with you. This isn’t about him. This isn’t about his father. This is about you making a decision that could really impact your career. End of discussion. I hope you get the job! 🙂

    Lol, unless it is a MAJOR Milestone with a “Family Celebration” for his Dad’s 50th etc. I’d be leaning on continuing your Job Hunt (his Dad will understand)

    BUT if it is his Dad’s 80th, 85th, 95th, 100th, or 100+ Birthday Celebration

    Then I migh reconsider.

    As those suckers only come once… and the next one is never for certain.

    Better to Celebrate LIFE for the Living NOW than have the next Family Get-together be for a Funeral.

    Hope this helps,

    Agreed with everyone!  You owe it to yourself to do whatever you need to do to advance your career, and it sounds like it is really important to you.

    @veryberry13:  That’s absurd.      I can’t imagine anyone would put a bday celebration above a job interview.

    It does not matter whose birthday it is, the job interview should come first. Why would your husband be upset? Jobs pay the bills, and a career changing interview is even more important. Screw the birthday and do what you need to do.
