Because Plan A never works! LOL
About a month ago, A-san asked if I wanted to go to Japan with her in July. Without really thinking, I said YES, of course! So, I went to talk to my boss if I could take a few (5-6) days off in July. His first question was WHEN in July, as we’d have 3rd quarter business plan to work on. When I told him it’s the beginning of the month, he gave me an OK.
Plan A: Go to Japan with A-san in July, probably 7/1-7/12
Then, a couple weeks ago, my relatives in Thailand changed their travel plan. Supposedly, they’d come to Seattle on 4/22, and the entire family would go to Canada together for 10 days, leaving me behind, playing Home Alone, since I had 2nd quarter business plan to deal with. Yeah, it’s always like this, me missing family trip due to work.
Now, the plan got postponed for a month, they’ll end up being here on May 20th instead, and the family will leave for Canada. They wanted me to go with them, I wanted to go with them, as a result, I decided to ditch a trip to Hokkaido with A-san *headdesks* My boss was, again, okay with the change in vacation plan.
Scratch Plan A.
Plan B: Go on a family road trip to Canada, 5/23-5/31
Then, Takki just had to announce a solo tour. WT*!? ARGHHHHH!!! What am I gonna dooooooooooo?!
Well, knowing me, I did exactly what I shouldn’t really do. Here we go, a conversation between my boss and me on late late late thursday afternoon…
me: boss, can I ask you for something?
boss: today or tomorrow?
me: *rethinking* on a second thought, maybe I’ll wait until after the business plan…
boss: what is it?
boss: what is it?
me: *in tiny voice* you’re going to kill me for this…
(dang, am I that easy to read?!)
me: well, yeah, kinda, yeah… I’m wondering if I can take another week off in July on top of the one in May? *grabs calendar and points* It’s basically 6 weeks after the one in May *bites tongue*
boss: *silence of the lamb*
me: well, there might be a concert during that week and I wanna go~! *sounds desperate*
boss: *cracks up* you… *laughs more* those guys on your wallpaper?
me: yup, one of them ^^”
me: I have to wait for concert schedule..
boss: go, don’t miss this. Buy your tickets and go! (I didn’t even try to explain J&A balloting process LOL)
me: *squeeeees* (silently screams ILU BOSS repeatedly!) THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!!!!
My boss just laughed LOL
I swear I have the best of luck when it comes to having a super kind boss who understands my obsession! My first manager at Boeing let me take a week off to T&T concert in May 2007 too! (after I started working there for less than 6 months! XD)
So, scratch plan B too!
Plan C: A family trip in May AND a Hokkaido trip in July
Now I just pray that Tono will be kind enough to have a concert during that week, then everything will be perfect! *crosses fingers*
Anyway, the past two week has been quite stressful. We’re working on our quarterly business plan with a bunch of new requirements from Core Finance.
But it’s all done now! Well, until July 13th at least. XD
Plus, I’m going to get those 2 weeks of my life back with 2 weeks off on 2 vacations in less than 2 months!
