Long story short, I bought a 6 month membership from our local gym for $150. A week later they posted a notice of employment for a position there, I applied, and shortly after I received the position. Now, this job has the benefit of offering a free membership to all employees as long as they are employed. So basically, I dropped $150 only to find out two weeks later it was useless. My boss said candidly (I didn't bring it up) that not to worry, if I ever quit it will be just start then and I'll be 6 months paid from whenever I quit. I really don't go to the gym much anymore, even with a free membership (I do my workouts at home now with P90X) and I highly doubt after I quit I'll ever have any interest of joining up again. (Plus, I plan to work here until I go to university in a year, so even then it will be useless.) So what I'm getting at, is how would I ask my boss for the refunded money? $150 is a lot and I'd like it back (I wouldn't have any problem if I was going to use the membership eventually but I definitely won't). I work at a small gym with only a few staff members so the boss and I aren't as impersonal as the average office job. How would I ask her? Advice?
