I've been able to leave one simple hour early before to go and vote, but not this time. This is the way my email was handled by the head cheese clerical supervisor yesterday:
WAT: Are we allowed to leave early today to go vote? I'd like to leave at 5 if possible. Let me know. Thanks!
Satan: An employee who chooses to exercise his right to vote, and does not have sufficient time beyond the regular work schedule, may use up to two hours of paid time to vote in a statewide election. Time off used by the employee must be at the beginning or end of the regular work schedule, whichever time period allows for a sufficient amount of time off to vote, and is least disruptive to the work location. Employees who anticipate the need to use the two available hours must inform their managers immediately to allow for adequate coverage of operations. Employees may not use this time without prior notice to management.
Yes, WAT. She's already refusing to give me one measly hour. I mean, any idiot can read through her diplomatic piece of shit response right? To which I directly and to-the-point replied:
WAT: Which means you're denying my request. Thank you.
BUT NO! She has to add insult to injury! We're done right? I've been denied already! Isn't it obvious? The utter nerve of this presumptuous witch!Satan: I would need to know your answer to my question before I could approve or deny your request.
Oh really? You need to know my answer? Well honey, I don't have kids and I'm gay and I have an easy life compared to you monthly menstruating females right? SURE! Let's face it. You don't like me, you know I don't like you, and you had to just make this an issue. All over one little hour!
WAT: Other than traffic, I have no other reason.
Of course, being the coward that SHE IS, she couldn't reply to that reason, so she sent one of her demon minion supervisors to tell me that the polls closed at 8 and that I had sufficient time to go vote leaving at my normal 6 o'clock hour. The demon minion sup was going to let me go at 5 originally mind you! Until EVIL intervened. It's okay. Life is too short and precious to waste on something so insignificant. But I just thought I'd share the lengths certain people will go to assert their undeserved authority and just plain be mean about such minimal issues.
