So DH works a full time job 10+ hours a day 6 days a week. In the last two years he has missed one day due to me being in the hospital and he left work a few hours early for one of my doctors appointments.. Other than that he is always at work! Everyone at his job knows me and they have been like family to us for years, they know my due date is August 13th and DH talked to them months ago about taking one week vacation starting the day I have the baby. They said that would be fine and they would make sure he could have that time off! Well today he was informed that the only other guy that can cover his job while he is gone is taking a two week vacation aug 5-19 so DH might not be able to take off a full week because they will need someone there to run the shop. This upsets me for a few reasons. 1) the other worker only works part time and has only been there around 8 months. 2) his reason for vacation is simply to relax. 3) why in the heck would DHs boss even consider letting this guy take a vacation when DH has put in years of loyal work and never asked off for anything for any length of time. This is his first child and he was already told he could have the time off! I honestly think it is very shitty and I hope I'm not acting selfish but it seems unfair!
Sorry about this long rant! Am I wrong for being upset? I told DH to say something... should he????
