I emailed saying I really wanted to take the next week off, which he asked if I was going to take 2 weeks before Drew came, so I thought taking 2 weeks wouldn't be bad. His response: I need to know where this is, where this is, can you do this at home next week, and where is this. Also thrown in this was "we're real busy with this," so I'd feel guilty about staying home. Nice! No, how are things going, congrats again, nothing. This will be fresh in mind when resignation comes.
I email back saying where things are, but not addressing item 3, can I do this at home. So the response, what about item 3. So, I'm coming in one day next week to take care of that and get them off my back. Let alone this is vacation that I'VE EARNED LAST YEAR and carryed over to this year for this particular purpose.
Note to employers: If you treat your employees good, they will want to stay and work for you. If you try to squeeze every little ounce of work out of them and show no interest in anything they are doing outside of work, like celebrating the birth of their first child, they will not want to work for you and will leave.
