In the lead up to the summer break you had been working very long hours and spending a considerable amount of time away from your family. You took two weeks off over the holiday period and promised your partner you will be enjoying some quality time with your family during the break.
However... on the second day of your holiday which is a two hour drive from your office, you receive a message on your phone that your manager would like you to come into the office as something urgent has come up in relation to a proposal you have been working on - it sounds like this could make a serious dent in your time off.
You have some concerns about job security given there were recent redundancies and given the client you could win from this proposal, the loss of business would be significant.
What would you do?
