It happened many times that I had to work on a holiday or a day off. How to handle? Your job is important, you go to work and you will have fun another day.

@HAPPSINGH I know, it's very annoying when it happens because you are prepared for a relaxed day and suddenly your plans have to be changed.

Lol..no if I am leave then I won't attend office, it's too far from city and public transport is not available so they won't call me anyways, if it's that urgent , some one can work in my place

If I am on leave that means I have to attend some urgent work. My boss knows this well and other colleagues. So no one has the guts to call me if I am on leave. However, I will take leave only on emergency.

I am sorry that happened to you. Many years ago, something similar happened to my husband. He had scheduled a vacation and we had let his relatives know we were coming for a visit. But, then his manager asked if he could reschedule the vacation. So, my husband said ok. So, we had to call the relatives and say we were coming a different time.

Well, it did happened twice that I was called when I was on leave. Once someone in my family was ill but I was called to work. I completed the work in 3 hours and went back. Another day, I had a sore throat and fever. However, there was something urgent in the office and I had to go. Luckily the things were wrapped up in two hours.
