My boyfriend/baby dad is going to prison in the beginning of January. He won a vacation at work for highest production and has 2 tickets to mountain vacation.
I need to ask for 3 days off for that, and then one more day to drop him off at prison. All in the same week.
I ve told my manager the situation and about my request days off, but he still hasn t approved or denied them and it s been about two weeks. I am the only cake decorator at the store but I really need these days off. How can I convince him/ask again?
