    Its fun to threaten to take a vacation day just to see how many emergency rush jobs come piling in!

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

    True story - back in the days of drum scanning and litho a colleague requested and was granted a week's leave to stay with his mother who had been diagnosed with breast cancer which had subsequently spread throughout her body and the prognosis was not good, while driving to go and stay with his mother he receives a call from his production manager to ask him to return as the work is flooding in and the temp has cancelled, my colleague reminds his boss why he required this leave to which his managers replied "where is your loyalty??!!"

    "my colleague reminds his boss why he required this leave to which his managers replied "where is your loyalty??!!"
    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.
