PostSubject: I need a day off work   Tue May 16, 2017 8:27 am


I have a boat load of vacation and personal days. I need to start taking them. Been saving them to move but that hardly seems like a vacation. I need to go somewhere and take a break.

Does this happen to men?

Yes, this man leaves for Amsterdam today to spend a week getting drunk and looking at renaissance paintings.

Yes, it does. I just moved over to a new company, and made a huge mistake of not taking vacation between the two. I had all my vacation from my old employer (Haven't taken a day since October last year) go to waste, well they paid me for it but I didn't use the days.

Take some time, and take some time when you are done moving, enjoy the weather, or go somewhere for you.

I would love to take a day here or there for actual vacation. All my days end up being child care days, or clean the house days, or something non-vacation. I definitely feel like I belong in this commercial.

I am off May 25th and return June 5th

I should be done moving in and unpacked early on but I am worried we will want to do some project for storage or the patio and that will limit my opportunities. I have 256.00 hours in my vacation/personal bank. Problem is I have these projects at work that have caused too many meetings and taking days off has been hard to find lately. Those need to end. Taking days off to move already caused havoc to the project schedule.

The project is a big one though. When complete we have a huge chance to be voted for a Presidential Award and called onto the field during an ND game for recognition and handed signed footballs.

I don't realize I need a vacation until the week after my vacation. This is my 2nd week back at work after a week off and I see how much more productive I am after recharging the batteries and doing sweet fuck all for 7 days. I've planned my time off so that I get a week off every 2 months.

I think folks take less time off Jan-May than they do the later part of the year. Outside of March Madness I usually wait until close to Memorial Day before I start ramping up the vacation ideas. Mr. G always says we should vacation in Jan/Feb but we never do it.

Sun would be nice that time of year.

We have a use it or lose it policy at work. I didn't use a single sick or vacation day last year. That makes me an idiot.

I'm so ready for a vacation. Problem is, I had a mini one last month. Now playing catchup. Today's going to be a long one. Now more than ever I need at least one day to relax.

I work at a small family company and really there's 3 of us with 1 being the owner who is more like part time. So we don't necessarily get time off but we all cover each other for appointements, vacations, etc. The point is if I can take a week long vacation in June and still get paid for it at my small family company then you people need to use time off. It doesn't make you a bad employee as to me it shows me you have a life outside of work. I think there are better times than others to take time off so there should be some planning involved. Mostly here we just make sure no one else is off that day and we're good to go. My last 2 days off were for the vasectomy so that was not a fun way to be off work for 2 days.

There's a guy at my office that only uses a day or two all year and then takes like two weeks off at the very end to go on an extended vacation through Christmas. I guess he submits it at the beginning of every year in order to make sure nobody else takes those days off, which is kind of annoying, but there is absolutely zero sense in NOT using vacation days at some point. At very least a Friday or Monday here and there when things aren't too hectic.

I personally took off several days in a row after surgery and just got caught back up today. One more day off on Friday to go look at some potential houses and then I'll be stuck until I leave in the fall for law school.

Luckily, work trips usually get sprinkled in every month or so to break up the monotony.

Even in retirement we take vacations!....go to the beach two weeks a year generally and then a trip to the states. We spend a lot of time in community service through our non profit...Butterflies en Mexico http://www.gomariposa.org/...and both of us being Rotarians.
When I retired from education I had 186 sick days in the bank..probably should have taken some of those along the way.

My in laws were lifetime educators. She used sick days to buy out like 2 years of service if their bid to get her to retire. I used my days off when teaching. It's a real hard career to take days off. Usually felt like more work to,take a day off then to just go in.

We dont lose our vacation if we dont use it, but we dont earn anymore at a certain amount. I stop earning if I dont take a day in May.

Use those days. Enjoy your life and live don't just work. I live my life as if we're not guaranteed tomorrow. It's a balance between living in the moment and planning for the future.

I've never been either actually. It's about 3 hours from me now. Some day, maybe when the kid gets a little older.

Yes. Well, no...I work all day every fucking day but I only have to go that place, that job 3 days a week. They make up for it by sucking extra hard when I'm there. Then I work here god knows how many hours a week but that's unpaid. Then there is my side business where I don't get paid nearly enough and simultaneously some feel I get paid too much which is an awesome dynamic.

See, if I started shopping I could get in a ton of trouble.  Actually, if we didn't have these fucking cats I was showing Valerie some furniture I want (and she agreed)....
