View Full Version : Bummer

Some of you may have known that FH got laid off recently. He had been having trouble finding a job. He's been going on interviews but nothing has been coming up. Today he had two interviews. The second one went soo well that they hired him on the spot.
Woo hoo! We are both really excited. They pay isn't as high has he had at his last job but it's something and that is better than nothing.
The bad thing about it though is that his Boss said that although he can give him the Wedding date off, he can not give him the dates for our Honeymoon. Although I am happy that he is going to be working, I must admit that I am extremely bummed. We already had everything booked. I was really looking forward to being able to just get away. We haven't been able to do anything like that since we've been together.
I'm sad now....:(

Oh Erica - you are having a rough day love - first off CONGRATS TO FH on the new job - second: that really sucks about the honeymoon - is there anyway to postpone it until he has more time in? It's odd that the new boss person can't accomodate IMHO. When I am hiring one of the first things I ask after offering the job is if there are any dates that have been pre-booked that we can work around, but that's me I guess :) - sending you nothing but HAPPY THOUGHTS girl :)

Aww I am sorry. That really sucks. We are going through the same thing and my FH just got a job last week after being off for over a month. He mentioned we were getting married but nothing about the honeymoon. I am sure it will be okay or hope it will since his boss is one of the Hockey Dads. (He played hockey for 18 years.). Can you just take a special weekend away somewhere or push the honeymoon date back?

Most likely we'll have to wait for the honeymoon. But I don't know when he'll be able to have free time. This new job is a set schedule, plus he is on call on the weekend.
I wish he would get the job from the first interview he has this morning. They understood though whole Wedding and Honeymoon situation and said that if he was to get hired, they would understand.
I know that's kinda selfish, especially since I know we need the money but if we cancel our reservations I am going to be soo totally upset!

Well I guess it is good news that he got a job. He can still try and see if he gets the 1st job. If he does then he can tell this job that he got another job with better pay etc. At least for now he has an income. I feel bad that you will have to put off your honeymoon. That bites.

That is good news that he got the job. YAY! Congrats.
I can understand that you'd be bummed about it. In my opinion, it is really odd that they won't let him take off for the honeymoon that is already booked.
Because it is already booked, are you going to be able to reschedule without losing any money?

Congrats to your FH for finding a job!!!! YAY! I'm sorry to hear about the honeymoon, it seems really odd to me that they won't give him those days off.... you should have him go back into work and tell them that the honeymoon has been paid and you are not able to get a refund...so you guys must go? Just a thought.
Seriously that shows bad judgment on their part...makes you wonder if there's an emergency if he can call in or take a day off. :(
But still have him look for better opportunities and interview with other companies.
