No, I aint going to The Crucible for it. There's no way they could've stopped me doing that.
To be honest, all I was planning on doing was sitting at home and consuming my own body weight in beer and crisps. I technically wasn't asked if I could cancel my annual leave, apparently they are not allowed to. But it was known that they would be absurdly grateful if I could. I've agreed to do this, as my time off didn't really involve me doing anything other then sitting at home watching telly. I didn't even have any plans to watch it with anybody, so all I am missing in effect is sitting at home in my pyjamas watching telly.
Unfortunately, though I'm the only person in my department here, we share the building with people from different departments, who like sticking their noses into stuff that isn't any of their business, who look at me disapprovingly enough for just sneaking on the internet at work. Watching it on the BBC website would probably get me reported. I guess I just have to catch what I can in the evenings, and make the most of the weekends play. (And enjoy the final.)
At least my new manager is a reasonable person. I've had two others since I've worked in, and the first would've not given me a choice in the matter, and threaten to hold me up on a disciplinary if I said no.
(Thank buck he's gone.) The one I have at the moment seemed to hate doing this to me, so I am hoping it gets remembered and I can call in a favour sometime in the future.
Still gutted though.
