Yarnspinner, Have these people never held a job?! I can not imagine having a job and not having to let my bosses know when I needed time off.

And I'm putting on my sunglasses because your spine is so shiny!!

I know! I'm lucky that I can let my current manager know the day ahead of something if something sudden should come up, but she still needs some sort of notice.

True--and my job, the length of time ahead of the request increases the longer the time off request is.  Ask for a day/partial day, you can ask the day before.  Ask for a week, you're expected to put in a month's notice.  Sure, for true emergencies, you might be unable to give advance notice, but that's for things like issues that legitimately couldn't have been seen ahead of time--and that's stuff like medical emergencies or death in the close family, not whimsy.

Yarnspinner...that's amazing!  :)

The best part is that it went right over their heads and now if they need your help, they'll have to actually ask rather than assume.
