MAN FEELING GUILTY FOR TAKING AN EXTRA OFFDAY AFTER DEMANDING TO THE BOSS

Advertisements

I work in a tattoo shop, so it is a pretty flexible, chill work environment. There are only a few of us who work there, and we do not work in shifts, so we all know each other pretty well.

The problem comes in when yesterday, three of the owners (30F “Ivy,” 40F “Kit,” 36M “Michael”) were taking about giving us three days off for Christmas. I had been planning our “shop-family” Christmas get-together with Ivy and Kit a few minutes prior, so I was with the three of them while they were discussing the days.

(I am off on Tuesdays and we are closed on Sundays) I had asked to have December 26th off about five months ago. I got denied because the week after Christmas is one of our busiest weeks of the year. I said “okay, I get that, I didn’t even think about that,” and asked if the Monday before that would be okay, and all four owners said yes. So, I rearranged my plans with no problems.

Then, when they were discussing whether we would have the 23rd or the 26th off, they said we should be closed the 24th, 25th, and 26th – with a stipulation. Everyone would have to come in on their usual days off that week.

I said “no, I’m not coming in the 27th, that is the only day my family can celebrate Christmas with my dad because he and I are both off that day. Plus, I asked for the 26th off five months ago and was told no, so I changed my plans accordingly.”

Michael’s response was, “Then we will close the 24th and 25th, then work our normal schedule the following week.”

Now I feel like an AH for getting that third day taken away from everyone. My fiancĂ©e thinks that I am not the AH since everyone would have had to work their days off, so it would not be an “extra” day off anyway.

Am I guilty here?
