I'm so pissed of right now.....
MD says they had a discussion and I've only been here 6mnts cant take 1mnt leave.

I said Gordonsbay booking 2-15th was a condition of employment and it's not that I wanted to go on leave from 15-30dec they close!

He now want's me to take pc home and they'll pay my phone bill. For flip sake Im a bookkeeper what am I going to do with the pc ? Allocate payments? Phone for payments? Who's working this time of the year and making payments?

Nevermind that I have G's 3 kids, Ne and the maid and her kid of 3 what if something happens? huh?

Nice time for them to let me know? Him and the boss now discussing it....Me work and phone clients with Ne around? They dont want me in the office or to have keys....wat de hell gaan ek met trok parte maak????

Well, at least it sounds as though they're trying to help by making a plan. Maybe you need clarity about things, like "If you mentioned it as a condition of accepting employment --- why must that change ? And what exactly is it that they are anticipating as being needed to be done in that time ? Especially as it's a time when most other businesses close or are inattentive, and very few pay their bills.
And larify --- apparently you're asking for 2 week's leave, to run into the time when they will be closed anyway, and when presumably they were not expecting you or anyone else to be coming into the office.
Remind your boss that such a verbal agreement, which he witnessed, is legally binding.
The shotgun proposal would get you FAR more than 30 days away !
