Ironically, after my previous post, I was at Aldi and the cashier messed up my order. She fixed it for me and apologized and told me that her grandfather just passed away. She was upset because the store wasn't letting her go to the service that night.
I told her I would just go--that she might regret missing her grandfather's service. She was torn about it and I realized that they might fire her if she left her shift. So then I told her she really had to decide if it were worth losing her job--if she thought that might happen.
So what would you do? Would you risk your job to attend a close relative's funeral? I was also wondering if the store had the right to fire her if she skipped work to attend.
