Real Life Adventures (10/4/10)

Given the state of the economy, now is probably not the time to be complaining about vacation days. Some people have paid time off but aren’t allowed to take it because they’re asked to do the work of two (or three) people. Others are paid by the hour and can’t afford to take it easy. Still others are forced to take furlough days that cut into their paychecks. And let’s not forget about the legions of unemployed folks who would love to have less free time on their hands. But for those workers who are in a position to take vacation days, I have the following suggestion: space them out throughout the year. Take as many four-day weekends as possible. You’ll go back to work refreshed, but you won’t have to dig through a monstrous pile of paperwork upon your return.
