I am in a bit of a bind with my new job. During my interview, I informed them that I had a pre-existing obligation out of state from Dec 17th - Jan 3rd. He said that he would keep that in mind but if he hired me that we could work around my trip. Of course thats easy to say during the interview.
When I was hired, he once again reiterated that we would work it out...that I could possibly get a laptop and do the work while I was away. Then the first day, he said that he had thought about it and didnt think that was such a wise idea since I would need the support staff, printer, and A LOT of paper. So now I have to figure out what to do.
The tickets are non-refundable and not subject to any changes. On top of that it affects two other people who are going with me. I would basically have to leave my fiance in another state without her family or me during the holidays. My boss offered to pay for part of a new ticket but only up to a certain limit....which I cant find any tickets for.
Finally, my boss isnt even going to be there for almost the entire time I am gone. Which means that even if I get another flight, he isnt going to be there to answer any quetions.
