Vacation. Took 2 days this year. Request made for this Friday and the Dec 20th week plus 2 days the following week.
Denied. Manager said we need to discuss it.
I said, what did you want to talk about, played it off, I mentioned casually I am going to see my family, instantly got hit with an almost 20 minute monologue about what do I want to do in the company in terms of growth, am I serious about it, blah, blah, blah, you inquired about open opportunities earlier this year ( after which my manager gave a speech about expecting loyalty to both himself and the company).
I had to mute the damned phone because I was miserable. Miserably bored out of my mind as I casually heard the bs coming out of this dudes mouth.
Long story short. Just another fine example of the pure scum-baggery that affects us sales people when dealing with management.
I have been advised to try and compromise. My compromise will be coming in the terms of a great offer, giving notice, and maybe the finger. Probably even taking the time off and just not making it official.
What do you think?
