I see that you really do have all the worries of the world Jane. 

This must be a very stressful decision!

My experience of life tells me that you can't have your cake and eat it.

Most people would kill to have these choices. 

So your big decision does sound a trifle boastful and indulgent. 

Sorry Jane, I can't feel sorry for you.  

It seems you may be a public servant, academic or bureaucrat that finds making a decision difficult.

For me its a no brainer.

Work conference, boring. Holiday, replaceable, any time. Winning finals and the GF is a lifetime experience and memory. If you want to cash in on a free airfare for an Italian holiday, I feel even less sorry for you. 

If you live in many parts of Melbourne, and, in country Victoria, people don't have holidays or if they do, they save to go to the Murray or down to Rosebud. 

Now here's an idea, just go with your gut! 

Otherwise, you may end up blaming everyone else for the wrong decision.

 

Wow. I'm starting to think that you're not really Ernest Hemingway. The real Hemingway would have condensed all that down to the second last line and gone off to the bar for a drink.

I normally enjoy reading your posts; they are often eloquent and thoughtful. This one not so.

To Jane02

Get a grip. To risk missing a possible demons GF just for work is unconscionable.

Change job or tell the conference that you know it all and it's not worth attending and get someone else to take good notes.

Quite right, on the money. I have too much time on my hands at the moment. I actually like Jane's post and regret my embellished meanderings.  This often happens after I write something as I spiral into recriminations and shame and start thinking about drowning my sorrows. 

In regard to my real persona, you are aware of "split personality" or as my psychiatrist calls it these days ""dissociative identity disorder."" 

Explains everything.

Thanks for your critique.  

Very diplomatic. 

Spur of the moment can bring you undone.

Big decision to make here. I have a work conference next September in Italy that I have to attend.

If I have a holiday before the conference I will be back for the GF but will miss all of the other finals..

If I have my holiday after the conference I will miss the GF but most possibly be around for the first two rounds of finals.

Its too far to travel for just the conference.

Any advice? What would you do?

Absolute no brainer - you've seen finals wins.  GF option is a must.

That is how I feel. When Collingwood and St Kilda played for GF and there was a draw, my husband was at the first GF but we flew out that night for an overseas trip so he missed the second week and subsequent win. He still tells me it was one of his biggest regrets.

He barracks for Collingwood Jane, I'm sure he's got a suitcase full of regrets to choose from.

Wow - sorry I asked. I actually work in palliative care so I am not a public servant, academic or bureaucrat - just a nurse. Nor am I being boastful.

I have no intention of blaming anyone - as fellow Demon supporters I just wanted to throw it out there and see what others would do in my shoes.

Sorry Jane. My comments were meant to be ironic not serious. I am rarely serious. Nevertheless my apologies.

Put holiday first. It sounds as if you will deserve it when the time comes around.

Now you really are talking shyt Ernie. Miss a Melbourne Flag, are you insane? (Can a dead man be insane?)

Jane get a grip, send me your holiday tickets and go to the grand final, enjoy yourself. For me sadly I will be in Italy watching on TV.
