I know it is arogant to expect to get off each and everytime you ask to get off, but I'm ticked. I put in a request 6 weeks ago to have off for Christmas Eve (Wed.) because my family is coming to town. They are here 24/25. I watched the schedule change as other people had their schedules changed, but my stayed the same. I finally asked why. They said "oh, we forgot". Now I have been told that if I want off I have to work Christma Day. That's the only open shift left. I offered to work Christmas Eve morning, the night before, and two shifts after Christmas to help others out. They know I don't get to see my family often and that we are very active in our church. Everyone else is local and a couple don't even care about the holiday. What do I do? I'm ticked. I work when I'm suppose to and I help out when asked. I had my request in before everyone else, but because they forgot, I'm stuck.Answer Question

Did you ask verbally, or do you have a paper trail? What type of job do you do? Can you take a personal day or sick day? You need to find out who dropped the ball, but be proactive not nasty to keep a good workplace environment. I know it is hard, but you must be diplomatic regardless of being right.
