I am outraged!
Currently I take classes through University of Phoenix online. I am very close to getting my degree! I spoke with my academic advisor about taking time off when the baby is born. She informed me I can only take 2 weeks off and I can't use "that" as a medical reason to take a leave of absence for 2 months.
Of course as we all know, babies come when they want, so there is no way for me to schedule 2 weeks off this far ahead of time. Who knows when this baby will make an appearance? That's part of the fun.
She said, without missing a beat, "You'll just have to schedule a c-section for October 11th." WHAT?!?!?!?! Is it just me or is this completely out of line? Schedule major abdominal surgery 2 weeks before my baby is even due to accommodate my school? It's infuriating. The worst part is that she thought I was crazy for not agreeing with her.
