so this might seem silly but im overthinking it and need an outside opinion on how to approach this. i just got a front desk job where my roommate and i are pretty much the only 2 workers besides our manager. weve been needing a 3rd person but since i started a week ago she has been focused on training me. My roommate is going out of town at the end of july for two weeks. before getting hired i knew id be going out of town at some point this summer but didnt know when. my boyfriend lives about 8 hours away so i am going to drive to see him (taking every covid safety precaution btw) i havent seen him in about 4 months and due to his job and busy schedules this is the best time. I found out 4 days that i will for sure be there but the other 3 are still up in the air with his job. these days fall on the days my roommate will be gone but she will be gone an extra week. how do i bring this up to my boss. she is going out of town till sunday and i plan to tell her then in order to give her time to hire and train a 3rd person to help cover us while we are gone. I just feel bad for not telling her during the interview but my coworker said not to since i dont know exact days yet. im really awful when it comes to confrontation so this is very stressful for me

It’s best to try to tell her as early as possible to try to give her time to either get someone else on. Realistically she could say no to you about giving you the days off. Especially since your roommate has already asked for them off and will be gone on those days. I personally like to tell managers (during interview stages) about potential time off especially during the summer because it’s normally busy and harder to get time off due to other people booking holidays.
