Boss gave me wrong weekend off...no Carlisle for me :-(

Post by MerkurScorpio » Sun May 16, 2004 1:38 am

Unfortunately, I was given the wrong weekend off at work and hired for a gig on Saturday June 5th (I'm a DJ) :x . Since the contracts are binding and this particular job already has a down payment, I have no way to get out of it. The fact that I was specifically requested for it also makes it impossible for me to switch with a coworker. Because the wedding I am working at is too far away from Carlisle (north of Scranton) I won't even be able to attend Friday night or Sunday afternoon, making this the first year since I bought my Scorpio that I won't be at Carlisle.

Needless to say it's disappointing :( , but I already asked for every weekend of June off next year so there will be no mistakes about which weekend I am given off :wink: . Only once a large poster bearing next year's dates is super-glued to my boss's desk and there is no threat of being given off the incorrect weekend will I open my June '05 schedule for gigs.

In any event, I hope everyone has a good time out there. I am looking into some shows in and around northeastern PA to see if any are Merkur-friendly. I will also be planning an autumn Merkur gathering as well as a big event announcement in the coming months (no hints until everything is planned...but it will be good) :shock: !

In closing, be safe, have fun and, of course, Happy Merkuring!

Well, that sucks, I'm sorry, but I understand the call of duty. Spin 'em well, give 'em a great wedding, and the universe will make it up to you.

Paul, I can't believe you won't be there. Maybe you could send the folks down in your Scorp to represent you.

Unfortunately my folks won't be able to make it down either, but I (along with my parents) will definitely be there in 2005.

Unfortunately, I am already booked the weekends of Bottle Hill Day and the BMW Euro Expo, but I am looking into some other events we might be able to meet up at, including a show over July 4th weekend. I'll have more details on this very soon. As for the BIG event announcement, it is still several weeks off. I can't give too much away about it since I'm still early in the development phase, but the event will likely be held in July or August of 2005.

Anyway, I hope you all have fun in Carlisle. Hope to see you all soon.

PMVH, I think you may have a "bug" and may need to call in sick.

"Yes boss, I think I have a 72 hour flu. It must be the nasty Carlisle strain, I should not be around people that have not been exposed previously. Symptoms include coughing, sneezing, and explaining simple German words"

Good Luck!
