So, if you left a voicemail with your HR rep explaining that you were going to be exhausting your leave to take care of a sick child and that you needed to know what your options were regarding a) going negative in annual leave or b) requesting leave without pay under family leave, wouldn't you expect to hear back pretty quickly?
Now, I'm being really impatient here. I left the voicemail early afternoonish yesterday, which is late afternoon where this HR rep is located. But, that also means it is late morning her time now and I haven't heard a peep back. Seriously, I would at least expect an, "I don't have any answers yet but I'm looking into this and will be back to you as soon as I can?". And given the nature of the request, I would expect that to come quickly.
Really though, I suppose it is only the matter of a few working hours. Perhaps I've become a slave to our instant communication age.
I'm just cranky about other shit this morning and taking it out on my HR rep. But hey, if you can't beat up on your HR rep when you are having a shitty morning...
