Question about having to take off work for a week?

my grandpa is very sick and I've never gotten to meet him. he's 61 years old and wants to pay to fly me out to see him, but I'll need a week off work. I haven't talked to my boss about it but I work at McDonald's and the boss said they were really flexible. would I be able to take off for a whole week and not get fired? I am supposed to go in a month or so. please help.

you should be fine. explain the situation and ask for some "compassionate" time off.
the sooner you inform your boss, the easier it will be for them to make staff adjustments to the schedule.

Just ask. Tell your boss the truth, you will not know his answer unless you ask. Unless you have a mean boss, it should be okay. I hope you get to meet your grandfather.
