Hopefully this will slide through!! We are severely shorthanded and have precious few people available to cover the open slots. There are a couple of guys that should be able to fill the gaps.
All I can do is wait and see!

There are many things you can do.
1. Be there
2. Make sure you are there
3. If you dont turn up, we will hunt you down
4. Blow up the plant. We dont need it anyway
5. I will tell your wife about your out of marriage affairs with your WR... You dirty dirty boy..
6. They will call you stumpy if you dont turn up?
7. DSP Airbox, how much was that again? And does the lovely wife know?
8. We can blow up the plant for you.
9. Call in sick
10. Tell them you have already paid for the airfare, accomodation, freight, etc and then provide them with the bill.

I'll freak if this doesn't come through. I mentioned they had better not expect anything resembling work from me. My Supervisor mentioned the Company may be obligated to pay for my financial loss incurred!
Hopefully I'll know something either this morning, or tonight when I come back in for my second night of mid shift.

Go on the ride no matter what. It's all about priorities, man. Nuclear meltdown - who cares! It sounds like this Moab trip will be well worth it. Don't be like me and work 24/7 while the blue thing collects dust in the garage. It's a very bad thing.
Go and enjoy life. Opps - gotta get back to work now…

Your typing is looking a little peaked & it reads like you might be developing a little cough or maybe it's the sniffles. Could be serious - you know flu season is starting in the NE....
We'll see you in Moab - one way or another. Alien abductions are becoming more common these days.

Or tell him you really need the time off to stalk your old boss who never let you have time off.

That sucks! Believe me when I say this. Make your vacations in advance and that's that, rain or shine. I'm not trying to pressure you for Moab,(P.S. did you & Mitch reserve a separate room? p ), but there is never a good time to take a vacation. For an example, when my first daughter was born, I went to work the next day. I had this illusion that I had to be there, that the job couldn't go on without me, that my employer LOVED me. When my second daugter was born I had a different employer. I had seen the true love of my previous employer. I had a much better perspective. I took five days off to celebrate her birth. The best example I can give is, does your company's CEO reschedule his vacation? F*%^ no he doesn't. I crossed this bridge 5 years ago and I wish I had done it sooner! If you can learn by the mistakes of others you're ahead of the curve.
