Hah, interesting. I asked for a week and a day off, instead I got an extra weekend shift. I'm good at negotiating and saying no. This was pretty much the conversation:

Me: How's the staffing situation on Friday and all of next week?

Boss: Next week will be really hectic.

Me: Oh, that's fine, I'll just take my vacation later.

Boss: Well, technically you're freelancing, so you could just say 'I'm not coming next week.'

Me: Yeah, I know, but it would be nice if we could publish newspapers next week as well.

Boss: Good point, and by the way, we're a one person short for the weekend shift next weekend. Are you busy?

Me: No, I can do it. Can I still get Friday off...?

In the defence of my negotiating skills, I did get Friday off, and I'm free to take Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday off next week if things are going according to the schedule :P
