 awhile back, my coworker asked for a day off. the boss approved it.

later, another coworker asked for the same day. boss approved it. THEN rejects the first chicks request, saying "she always asks for the day off after a holiday" (which really shouldnt matter, as long as we have the staff and she has the time, but whateves) so i told her. yea, left ME holding the bag. boss said if she had a problem she could talk to him tuesday (tomorrow).

then ANOTHER coworker asked for the SAME DAY OFF, and HE APPROVED IT! i havent told first coworker because she will flip!!!! she says she is gonna talk to him tomorrow and if he refuses, shes gopnna file a grievance. i dont blame her. but now probably im gonna be dragged in it since i have to send the requests and get the approvals or rejections. bah!

That sucks. I could see if maybe he hadn't already approved her request, but approving, then rejecting, it's going to look really bad on him for approving the others behind her rejection.

That's just so not right. You'll handle it with grace, I'm sure :-)
