buys an airline ticket last week to go see his girlfriend in Las Vegas in July. He also asked his boss for the time off.
Tonight I pick him up from work and he tells me that he has some slightly bad news. He looked at his schedule and he has to work 4-6 tomorrow night. Know what tomorrow night is???? It’s his FREAKING high school GRADUATION!!!! We need to be dressed and on our way to the ceremony at 5 freaking 30 tomorrow night to drive an hour to where the ceremony is to be held – where all of his family will be waiting to see him walk… several of who drove into town JUST for this occasion.
Then he tells me he had no choice, they really need him. It’s just him and one other guy working the grill. Soooooooooo…. on a Friday night with two people on the grill what is the likely hood he’s gonna get to leave at 6? yeah… exactly… Then get home and get showered and get dressed and get there. not very freaking likely!
So hey never mind the money me and my ex spent on invitations, cap and gown, pictures… never mind that family has come into town to see him graduate, that plans have been in place for this night for over a month…
So I ask him, didn’t you ask for tomorrow night off? He says…. “I just didn’t think to.” I could absolutely scream. The only reason we stayed here as long as we did was to get this kid graduated and he could freaking care less.
So I tell him that if there is a manager there he can talk to tonight, he better because if he doesn’t, his mommy is putting a call in to the manager tomorrow. Am I wrong for that? Is that going to far? I’m so screaming furious I almost went in tonight and pulled the mommy card.
I’m sitting here with tears in my eyes, barely holding on and stressed to my breaking point and now this.
