    • Taking a day off just because it is a graduation, wedding or because it is your birthday indicates that you do not take your job seriously. I employ 10 people. If any of them have a critical family need I am the first to tell them to attend to their families. The key word there is critical. Since you are turning 21 how about demonstrating to your employer that you are a dependable employee by coming to work EVERY day.

    • I don't see why it'd be a problem unless you make it a habit of continually skipping out on work. I mean, these are legitimate reasons.
