My MIL's 60th birthday was last summer. For a present, we offered to buy her a round-trip ticket to visit us once we moved. Well, she told us about a month ago she would like to come the week of my DH's and younger DD's 1st birthday (they share a b-day). So two weeks ago my husband puts in for the leave, it is approved, we buy MIL's plane ticket. Now, yesterday, my husband finds out they have scheduled something (he didn't specify) for that week he is suppose to be gone. He addressed it with his superiors and asked if it was going to be a problem for him not to be there, and they "freaked" and said yes, most definitely. GRRRRRR!!!!!!!
His leave was APPROVED! We BOUGHT the plane ticket.
He is still going to try to find someone to cover for him, but I am not holding my breath.
OK, vent over.
Have you ladies ever had a vacation / leave ruined?
