I'm taking a poll from you guys.
Situation: Your boss sends out a company wide e-mail stating that the company is paying for special training for all employees in their fields on certain days. Breakfast will be provided. Everyone has set days to show up and you have to be there at 7:45 in the morning. Then you discover that the day he assigned you to come in at that ungodly hour is none other than your day off. He adds, "If there is any problem with this date, please let me know so we can figure something out."
My response: Boss, I realize that you've gone through a lot of trouble to pay for and arrange this training opportunity, but that happens to be my day off. In addition to that fact, I walk to work. Having to walk in the heat to work just to turn around and come back an hour later is unnecessary exertion, and it's dangerous given my medical history. My only options would be to have somebody else get up extra early to pick me up, or to walk myself. Manager Man says there is a second day available on the following Monday. That would be far less conflicting.
Boss's Answer: Unfortunately, we cannot accommodate everyone. I suppose you'll either have to have someone bring you, walk, or we'll have someone train you later.
My question: how am I supposed to interpret this?
A) If I don't show up, I am lazy and deliberately unwilling to learn and improve.
B) If I do show up, they'll expect me to jump whenever they tell me to do so.
C) If I don't show up, I am ungrateful.
D) If I do show up, I am a good employee.
Now, assuming that you guys all vote in favor of my showing up...
A) Roll out of bed and show up to training in pajamas without showering or even bothering to brush my hair.
B) Take a shower, throw on shorts and a t-shirt, and try to look like I care a little.
C) Get dressed for work as I normally would for an hour of bullshit.
D) Just decide to stay in bed.
Any other thoughts on either?
