Is there a way you could get the appointment right after work? Explain to the prospective employer that you really don't want to take off more time than necessary. Or, could you schedule another appointment toward the end of the work day and take off enough time to include the interview? I have done that before: schedule a doctor's appointment for, say, 3 p.m. and take off for the rest of that day and go to the interview also. Is there another appointment that you could take one of your kids to and include the interview? I think if you are truthful with your present employer, she will appreciate your honesty, especially if you can schedule the appointment as late in the day as possible. I also think your prospective employer will appreciate that, too! I truly hope you can find a way to go to the interview with a clear conscience.

I'm excited, but I know I cannot just take vacation time tomorrow without giving a reason (in other words, I can't just say I have stuff to do and need off as the chances of getting it are slim, particularly since I was off today). My boss has mentioned that she knew once I graduated I would be moving on probably, and we are on good terms about it. She has mentioned that she thinks I'll be finding a different job soon.

I won't lie about why I'm taking off tomorrow, and I won't lie and just call in sick. I'm a bit nervous about telling my boss, but feel honesty is best. I feel I should just explain that this chance has come up and I would appreciate the time off. It's a gamble, because I don't want her to get mad, but I also don't want this opportunity slip by. What would y'all do?

Ryan, would this be something you could do for your appointment--go in early and get off early for your appointment?

I goofed up and read the nurses handwriting wrong and I thought our appointment was at 11:15 am, but instead it was 11:45 am. We got there too early!

Uggggh, I had to wait 55 minutes before the nurse called us back and then, the doctor himself ended up being about another hour behind schedule. I wasn't too thrilled about that, almost 2 hours of waiting before we even saw the doc. needless to say, everything checked out ok and the doc say he looks good...

I went back to the office and still got my 8 hours in today. I think the rest of the night will be dinner, (check), shower (check), some MMC, a Christmas movie and a bowl of peanut butter and chocolate Ice Cream....

Hey yea Ryan, I didn't even think about that, good call Seawaters! Maybe they will let you make up the time either by coming in early, staying late or a little of both? I guess it never hurts to ask....
