Asking for summer off...
For those that haven't seen my other thread in travel...I'm thinking of spending 8 weeks or so living in america with family as an all expenses paid working holiday. Now, I've got a job back here at a supermarket (which I don't really like) working 12 hours a week (though currently its only 7 because of my massive workload over the last term). When I spoke to my boss about a month ago when I asked to reduce my hours temporarily he basically had ago at me, called me lazy and accused me of not doing my uni work(!). He let me cut my hours down but he wasn't happy with me. Now I'm probably going to be asking to take summer off (unpaid obviously) because I want to go to america and then shortly after im going to africa. There's other uni students there who don't work during term time so they do let people go off places. But since this is summer and pretty much for leisure I was wondering how to go about asking? Am I being cheeky? Would he be allowed to sack me? If he says no I'd seriously think about handing my notice in because I don't really like it there...but it's nice to have the money. What shall I do??
