            It's a word, not in the boss's vocabulary. Kinda like the word "bonus".

                    I was working 2nd shift with a company when my Grandmother passed away. Sure enough this happened when we received a few jobs with a quick turn around time.

                    I had the production manager asking me to come into work the day of her funeral. He thought since the services were in the morning that it wouldn't conflict with my scheduled work time.

                      Was working at a different shop than I'm at now a few years back, and had to go in the hospital for an abnormal heart rhythm and stay a day or two. The morning they discharged me I called my boss to tell him what was going on that I would be in the next day because they wanted me to rest and take it easy for a day before going back and he nearly flipped his lid. Got let go not too long after that.

                        We have a CSR that always seems to have vacation whenever that CSR's jobs are going to press. It happens enough that it become a bit of a running joke. "Oh look, CSR X's job is on press tomorrow, guess it's a vacation week."
