You should tell them that you have been unwell for a few days and would like to use the holiday to get rested for the upcoming week!

👆🏼 I needed that. Being sick and holed up at home, only communicating w work people this wknd, my perspective has been skewed.

It wasn’t OP. Pull one aside and say you didn’t feel comfortable raising, state the facts w/out emotion. Ask him how he would have raised. No one will set your boundaries but you. And your setting a healthy boundary they will likely benefit from. I’ve said it a million times, we WILL suck the life out of you if YOU let us. Your ok to do this and will survive longer once you do

OP is unwell and should state that.. so that in case they OP needs to take a sick day, they know not to bother her..

on how to sell to the client. I am in the middle, of sorts, taking their disparate requests on proposal and sales deck updates prior to the mtg. I started on Friday and sent out multiple revisions up until yesterday after their feedback x3 on every version that went out. I want to set a boundary and not join the calls (2) today. It is a Holiday, I worked without complaint this wknd, and I am sick. Why do I feel like this is going to be a bad choice?

I caved and took the call. Sounded like shit. The MDs expressed appreciation. Not sure that was a good precedent to set.

I would not say you feel unwell (seems like whining) but state that you incorporated all requests, updated decks...and tonight - as it is holiday- you have a long planned event coming up you are not going to cancel

This precedent will make it harder in the future for you to set your boundaries because they will doubt and question it and try to push you. Be aware of that
