    I have not been upfront with my bosses as my company has been laying off and I would be the next one gone. It for some reason I didn't get CFD I would be screwed. Luckily I had a pregnant wife through this process so I made every "doctor appointment". Lol. Sounds terrible but I didn't have a choice.
    Also I gave CFD the number to my human resources department for verification. Human resources cannot report you employment verification.

    Good deal, the fact that my boss knew how much I wanted actually helped me, b/c she's the one that e-mailed me when I was gone to tell me the CFD was looking for me and then I turned my phone on to get calls, b/c otherwise I had my phone only receiving e-mail through wifi, no data or voice. Just didn't know what other people's situations were and if anyone was in a hell storm b/c of this.

    I've used every trick in the book since '09 to take days off work for processing..if they tracked it I'd have 7 kids and 5 lost dogs that I never found and a severe monthly reoccurring 24 hour flu..haa

    Ahh......let's see. My previous boss is/was 100% supportive. I gave him the heads-up after BI packet was turned in. To this day, still asks how things are going. Think he appreciated me telling him as opposed to getting a call blindly from IA.

    However, my new boss of the promotion I just accepted last week, does not. Kind of shady on my part but hey, i've gotta make sure #1 and my family is taken care of and a "plan b" is in place should this all fall apart.

    You pick your medical date based on the time you sign in at the front desk. In other words if you are the first person signed in, you get the first pick. The dates were spread over 2 weeks a broken up by half hour time slots.
    The location for the medical is Presidential Towers.
