  • This is what really sucks about the working world!  I don't understand why they have to be so unsupportive.  It's one thing if they don't understand, but don't make the working person's world miserable.  Geez.  I hope your meeting went well.

  • Sorry - it went PERFECT!!!  HR was shocked that I was even given any problems at all considering I work in the Office of Legal Affairs at SMU and we are the ones who come up with the policies on SMU's FMLA!!!  They know that they should have never said ANYTHING to begin with!!!

    So my direct office tried to come back and say I didn't have to get the papers and I told them Ummm yeah I think I'll go ahead and get them just in case!

    I have faxed the papers to the endo to sign.

  • Well that's great!  Yeah!  Always nice when we have a great appointment, although very ironic considering where you work!!  People are so strange, seriously!  (meaning your office for giving you crap!)

  • Just saw this. Sorry you had to go to this point. It's so disappointed and frustrating when other people don't understand an specific situation.

    Glad it all went well.
