I'm disappointed with the way my niece's graduation went down....
My niece graduated high school last night. My daughter was supposed to attend and go out to dinner last night night with the family, but she went to work instead. I told her weeks ago to request the night off, but she didn't. She did request time off for her graduation, prom, and prom weekend. She works at a local ice cream shop. I asked her to get coverage, but she said it didn't work. So, she was as going to call in sick, but my husband got angry, and yelled at her for not requesting time off ahead of time. She went to work.
I got in from work , after all this went down. I was upset that she wasn't going. My husband said it was her own fault. We went. My niece , brother in law, and sister in law were disappointed, she wasn't there and I felt terrible! The girls are so close and my daughter should have been there.
My niece was at her graduation and dinner last week! Should I have told her to pretend to be sick to get out of work and come with us? It's just a part time job and a graduation is once in a lifetime! Daughter said its her dad's fault for yelling at her.
I feel badly about the whole situation. Wish we had a do over! How would you feel? What would you do?
