- Wedding: April 2011
Bear with me.
Our wedding was originally in September 2011. Then a family member got sick so we moved it closer so that hopefully they can be there (which they aren’t sure they will make it to it, which is a completely different rant), so now it is April 2011. Unfortunately when choosing the date one of my Bridesmaid or Best Man refused to come if it was in April because of school, and one of my best guy friends couldn’t make it in May cuz he’s going overseas. So we basically compromised and made it right at the end of April. Well that date is the same as a girl I work with, so I checked with her first as I did not want to steal her thunder or anything, and she was more than fine with it.
As for my rant. This girl is my “opposite” so usually if we want time off we switch with each other. So I emailed the HR lady at work (who we were told over and over was there for US, she was great, blah blah blah( today (6 months in advance!!) to tell her what was going on and I get an email back of “I hope you’re not saying that your weddings are at the same time because this is a big problem and you have to find your own replacement, if I were to accomodate you I would have to hire someone else, etc.” when last week a girl going to Germany for a week was told by her “oh that’s fine! that’s what casual people are for!”
I know there’s ways around this, and I know something will work out, I’m just FRUSTRATED!!! (we have also booked EVERYTHING so we can’t find a new date)
