Tine: I hear you have some vacation days coming. Planning anything big? Dilbert: I plan to catch up on all the work I couldn’t get done here because people keep interrupting me. Tina: That’s a sad vacation. Dilbert: Then why am I craving it right now?
Managers and businesses can be so hypocritical, it sometimes drives me up the wall.
I have a holiday allowance and I’m only allowed to carry over 5 days of holiday leave over to the following year – any extra days, I lose. I’ve been lectured by my boss many times about not taking all my leave. So, this year, I booked everything in advance. I had to pull one week off due to work load, and now my boss wants me to pull ANOTHER week off my holiday. When I told her about the excess doing this would cause, she told me “don’t worry, it’ll be approved”.
So, they can make me lose holidays when it suits them, and keep them when it doesn’t…
