Frustrations

This week for Thanksgiving we are going to AZ, my Grandma's 80th birthday party is on Friday and we will be spending Thanksgiving with my Uncle Hersch. Jake asked for Wednesday off a little over a month ago. Because this is a new job he doesn't have any paid time off so any time he takes off is a "personal" day. They also don't schedule a week in advance or anything like that. You find out the time you work the day before (All the time not just for holidays).

His work told him they don't know if he gets it off, because all the PTO requests get granted before his personal time. It doesn't matter if they ask for the PTO the day before, they still get it off before him!! So Tuesday night we find out if he works Wednesday. He even asked if he could switch days so he works Monday and gets Wednesday off. They said they couldn't do that because the don't know 100% that he will be working Wednesday, and because Monday's schedule isn't made yet he wouldn't know who to switch with. I hope this all makes sense, they know what days they regularly have off but they don't know if they get a requested day off. UGH! I'm so frustrated. I wanted to be able to follow my family down and now we don't know if we will be able to. Who makes schedules the night before for EVERY DAY??!

Thanks for letting me vent.
