This summer has been a rough one. With my hubby undergoing radiation treatments and not feeling good mostly all summer...we had not taken any vacation as of yet. I did not want to go when he was not feeling well. So now I am officially on vacation and he is feeling pretty well. As I was departing for my 2 1/2 weeks off....My boss told me that taking off this long is quite a disruption. A disruption? I just went through hell with my husband this past summer....I've worked there for over 20 years and I work for one of the most difficult people in the whole place that no one else wants to work for and it's a disruption? I have never taken off this long in a row in my whole time working there. My thoughts are this is a special circumstance and concessions need to be made. Am I being fair?
