Death in the family? That’s not an excuse…

I once got a final written warning because I didn’t give enough notice to take two days off.

My grandfather died and I had to travel across the country to his funeral. After I explained this to my 16-year-old manager, I was told I wasn’t getting paid for it and that I was putting the company under “immense pressure” and I should have told them earlier so they could cover my shift … I tried to delicately explain I don’t possess psychic powers to be able to predict heart attacks within my family. Apparently still not good enough. What a joke.
