I Need A Vacation
Each year I save some vacation time so that I can skip the office holiday party.
It used to be on December 24th each year (the day before the holiday), but in recent years they have been moving it farther from the actual holiday, this year it's on the 18th (a Thursday). Wouldn't you know that I requested every day from the 19th to the 24 as vacation, although I was allowed to ask for the 18th off and I got it.
I think I will actually take off the 18th and the 19th, then come in the rest of the year.
