My boss come up to me in a panic on Monday saying She is never going to get any work done this year. I kind of gave her a blank look and she replied “just look at the calendar“ before storming off. I look at the calendar and now I’m freaking. But for a totally different reason. i didn’t make any vacation plans yet and the calendar is almost Completely full for the whole year. We have rules we cannot share another vacation time with anyone in our department Unless it’s something we have No control over. IE wedding, sick, etc. Apparently for two of my co workers they are attending separate weddings at the same time. I also have an additional rule because of my role that I cannot request ANY time off a week before and after month end. I was just trying to get through tax time The absolute worst crazy three months EVER before worrying about making plans and now I am worried I am too late. Over lunch yesterday I managed to squeeze a reservation to my favorite campground that had some weekdays available. Made the leave request and later that evening I hear my boss scream. I run over to her thinking something happened. Nope, she read my leave request, but She miss read the days. Apparently with the Covid rules easing up most places here people in my office are itching to get out and go on their normal vacations. So to say I’m scrambling trying to make reservations that match What is left for me to use And it’s not easy. I lucked Out and grabbed a week err almost in The Smokies. If you hear a distant scream it’s just my boss when she gets this request. Ive never seen the calendar this full ever in my years working there. I only hope they don’t all come back sick because they decided to fly on a cramped plane. Then we are going to have serious problems.
