    Brownslave688 You want a toe? I can get you a toe.

    Option week?

    If so you can still take the week you'll just only get paid for 4 days I believe.

    Sounds like he already used 4 days of his option week. He was only paid for one day of vacation.

    My bad I read it that he called in 4 times and they paid him for 1.

    Most places will let you take the scheduled vacation anyway but yeah if only 1 day left and they want you to come in. Sorry go to work.

    Why did the OP take the job if he does not want to go to work when needed?

    In this area, if you are scheduled on vacation using optional and/or sick days and you don't have them, you are still given the time off but unpaid.

    How is that fair to a lower seniority employee who may have wanted that week but got locked out?

    I wonder if this is benefits related.
  13. Depends if you got paid for the 4 times you called in this year.

    Sounds like you already got your answer.
    You chose option 1 at this time last year, they screwed up not you.
    Have your steward explain it to them if you're worried.

    jumpman23 Oh Yeah

    I always bid out my 5 sick n 5 optionals days as 2 extra weeks of vacation. Freak that id rather have 2 extra weeks of vacation aka 9 days off. As you get older your body appreciates them extra 2 weeks lol. If I want a day off ill take an unpaid day every single time. And always schedule stuff like Dr. appointments and dentist visits around my vacation. I hardly ever get sick and if im feeling poopy ill call in ask if they have extra drivers that day and I usually get hooked up. That's the advantage of never calling in, they know if im calling in asking them that, that I legitimately Dont feel good. Always cracks me up dudes that call out all the time, SAME IDIOTS ALWAYS, they get mad if they cant get off if they don't have extras. LEARN HOW TO PLAY THE GAME IDIOTS lol. 4 weeks of bidded vacation turns into 6 weeks- THATS EINSTEIN lol.
