sosunnyincalifornia:  I would do one of two things:

1. Tell finace that a last minute week-long trip to Italy won’t be possible because I’ll be working,

2. Leave the job a week earlier than planned and go to Italy the week before school starts.

I would not ask for a week off when you’ll only be working 12 weeks, part time. That’s a little crazy, and yes, if you worked at my company our staff would definitely think less of you for that (and you wouldn’t be hired back in the future).

sosunnyincalifornia:  This might not be the “healthy” way to approach it, but I have this attitude that “in 5 years, who will remember where I was? My Fiance or my boss?” I’d always ask. My last company was super toxic and my boss wouldn’t let me take two days off to take a trip with my family, and I always regret taking “no” for an answer. No job is more important to me than adventure or experiences, ESPECIALLY with the people I love.

chigirl217bride:  I agree. I’ve wasted too many opportunities worried about getting in trouble and didn’t end up being there long anyway, and gave up things I wanted and needed to do. Then again, I’ve worked places that would fire people for calling in sick (no joke). And as for being rehired with a company, maybe I’ve just worked with the wrong ones, but it’s always been once you leave, you’re done with the company regardless. There is no coming back.
