A BRIDE is being forced to quit her job after her boss refused to give her time off to attend her own wedding – as she’s booked a holiday.
The woman revealed her dilemma on Mumsnet, explain she recently started a new job but informed HR of her upcoming wedding and honeymoon.
The bride-to-be cleared her dates with them, but was shocked to find her manager later told her she couldn’t have the time off – as she’s on holiday.
To add insult to injury, the boss then told her she should reschedule her wedding so it didn’t clash with her trip.
Flabbergasted, the bride, a master’s student, says her only option is to quit.
Explaining the bonkers situation, the bride said she took the part-time job at a make-up counter to earn some extra money in the run-up to the wedding.
She said: “When I sent back my contract to HR I mentioned I had my wedding coming up and a week off for my honeymoon. They said that was no problem.
“I started the job and discovered my manager has the week of my honeymoon booked off for a holiday and flies out on my wedding day.
“The full time assistant is being a bridesmaid at another wedding that day so there is no cover in the store.”
As there was no one available to work, that’s when the manager dropped the bombshell – that the bride couldn’t have the time off to get married.
She continued: “My manager said I cannot have the time off.
“I thought she was joking so I said ‘sure, I’ll just re-arrange it for the following week then!’
“She said that I should make it at least a couple of weeks after HER holiday.
“I explained that it wasn’t possible to cancel my wedding and she said it was a shame I wasn’t showing my dedication to the brand and being a team player so early on in the job.
“No more has been said as she has gone off sick so it’s just me and the other assistant.”
The shocked bride-to-be is debating whether to quit now, or wait just before her wedding and leave.
But she debated walking out, adding: “Would I be totally unreasonable to not go in tomorrow and just to never go back again?!”
The “crazy” situation has been mocked online, with hundreds of people commenting on the post – branding the boss a “cow”.
One person said: “I’m surprised you didn’t just laugh and walk out when she suggested you move your wedding!”
Another wrote: “I’d resign at the time that’s going to cause them the most inconvenience.”
A third said: “Tell the manager to stick her lipstick up her arse and leave. Ridiculous people.”
Someone else suggested: “Go in, write F**K YOU on the make up counter in red lipstick… then leave.”
