Today is just the fucking best.
I used my PTO to be with Jacen's family and now I don't have enough for the funeral on Wednesday. I found out this morning that bereavement doesn't apply to me because Vanessa isn't considered immediate family since Jacen and I ARE NOT MARRIED.
OKAY. GREAT. PLAN B: Try to get some PTO donations from co-workers. I meet with HR and find out that the same rules still apply. Not married. Not immediate family. CANNOT REQUEST PTO DONATIONS. I'm constantly seeing co-workers asking for donations to "bond" with their newborns when they had 9 MONTHS to save up their PTO BUT I CAN'T GO BURY MY SISTER-IN-LAW?
