How do I tell my boss that I can't come to work as I'm already booked to attend a convention? Not sure how to break the news.

A female United States age 22-25, *oeismeanyou writes:

Modnote: poster clarified that she holds 2 jobs. One weekdays Mon-Fri and one part time at weekends.

..............................................................

I work as a Nanny full-time 9-5 Monday through Friday. A week or so ago, she told me that my last day would be on the 29th of May.

Before then, she didn't tell me a specific date, and all she told me was that my last day would be some time at the end of May and wasn't specific about it.

Anyways, there is a convention that I already got tickets for and already booked the hotel for already that falls on my last week (convention is May 27th through June 2nd).

I literally never have time off and don't take time off unless I really have to and I can't reschedule to go to this convention.

How do I tell her that I'm going on vacation before then and I wouldn't be able to make it to work?

My boss is sometimes unpredictable so, I'm not sure how to ask her, hence the reason why I'm asking, or I would have flat out tell her that I'm going on vacation that week.

And when she said the 29th of May, I wasn't thinking at the time that my vacation was planned from the 26th of May till the 2nd of June.

I also have a part-time job that won't impact my vacation plans (I have 2 jobs I work 7 days a week)

Any suggestions?

Honeypie agony auntWell, I'm glad you told her and that she realized he doesn't "own" you.

Enjoy you vacation and hopefully your next employer will be a less "dramatic" person.

Well, thanks Honeypie for being the only person to answer. I did end up telling her about the vacation shortly after this post and she got an attitude with me, but she had no choice to accept it.

Honeypie agony auntShe told YOU ... Well, I'd tell HER that unfortunately your LAST day will be the 26th (or 25th) as you have a vacation booked already and can not change the dates.

She can either accept it or not... What is she going to do?
