Wow – good luck from me too.  I can’t believe they would try to tell you (or your co-worker) when you can or can’t get married.  That has to be completely illegal.  Asking you to schedule your vacation around busy work times is one thing, but trying to control your private life is completely something else.

Where I work they technically have to approve your vacation requests, but if you make them far enough in advance there is seldom any problem.  I’ve only ever had one boss who tried to cancel a vacation on me – he was a jerk.  I crossed my fingers and told him that I was completely willing to work extra both before and after the vacation to help with the workload, but not going wasn’t actually an option – so if he wanted me to pack up my things before I left he should let me know.  Apparently he wasn’t all that serious – just a bully trying to push people around.  After all, even in a bad economy when people are looking for jobs it’s still expensive to replace an employee who already knows what they are doing.  I think that generally in any skilled position that whole "All vacations cancelled" thing is a bluff.

Congrats on getting approved Belle – and even though it seems unfair that you’re not getting your raise until "midyear", be happy that you are getting a raise.  In my staff meeting yesterday, our director announced that due to the state’s budget crisis (I work in higher education at a public university) no one at the University will be getting a merit or "cost of living" increase this year…. so be happy that your increase is late rather than never!  And best wishes for a great long weekend in March!
