In my current role I was hit with a string of illness that made it inadvisable to come into work for ~4 days, and then my significant other had broken her foot and required assistance for the first day so I was out for an additional 2 days. This was all over the course of 3 months.
After this I was sat down by my manager, and an HR rep. and told that if I intend to keep this position, I will need to make sure I am available.
Now as we near Thanksgiving I requested the day before, and the day after Thanksgiving, the day before as it is more convenient for my family to observe the holiday then due to work restrictions, and the day after because I figure there's not much of a point to me being out of the office for two days that week, only to come back for one day before the weekend, and the extra days off will help me manage my stress more effectively.
The day after I put the request in the system the same manager had come to me privately without HR present and had said something to the effect of "I saw you put in for some time off? Just bear in mind to keep up your availability, wouldn't want this to effect your position."
He seemed to be making what to me seemed to be a thinly veiled threat against my position. Is it at all reasonable to expect him to do this? How should I proceed?
