I am a software engineer upgrading a piece of manufacturing software on site. This is only my third time going onsite. So to summarize, this has been a nightmare. I'm under-qualified for this particular onsite assignment and I warned the project lead about it. However, I agreed that I would give it my best try. A 2 day project is now going on its 6th day.
A solution to fix the issue was finally found and I'll be driving back home tomorrow, which is Sunday. The drive is 11 hours long and I typically work Monday through Friday. Monday, my company is expecting me to show up for work like any other week, but I've completely missed my weekend. I haven't seen my family since last Sunday and I need to catch up with "life".
Is it typically acceptable to ask for a day off to avoid working 12 days straight(2 driving, 10 working)? I'm salaried by the way.
