    I'll work the morning of the 24th. If things are really slow, I might take the whole day off.

    Four days of work this week. Four days of work next week and then a four day weekend.
    The number 4 must mean something.

    i'm off until the new year

    I normally would have worked longer
    but I had some time off sitting there
    and I've officially lost my desire to contribute to society

    I'm off till Jan 4 also. Unlike Howard, I actually didn't use all my vacation days, too much work to get done.

    Off 'til the 4th. We used to close the week after xmas. This is common in my industry. But my company did away with it for manufacturing a couple of years ago. The last two years I've been able to use vacation time to get both the week before and the week after. I'm worried about getting it next year. We had two people leave us this fall and my boss wouldn't let anyone take time in the last week of the year. He says we're going to be busy. But he said that last year too and we weren't. In the run up to the end of the year, we had a lot of un-requested vacation among department personnel that had to be used before 1/1. But he was adamant about not letting anyone take time in the last week. I only got off because he approved it back in April. Senior management has been trying to take this away for a long time. My guess is they've told managers to get their people out of the habit of viewing the last week of the year as vacation/break.

    I guess I'm more like Howard than you. I'd never leave unused vacation time on the table. We get to carryover some time. But we eventually lose it if we don't use it. I'd hate to work for a place that expected me to eat my time. My mom's husband has a boss's like that. He thinks nothing of calling them while they're on vacation. He's even had them come home early and cut a few short. Of course I only get 20 days, not 100 like our hero.

    Office closes 2 hours early thurs, work 2 days next week and then off til the 4th. I usually take a week off around this time but I am currently hiring 2 positions and just completed annual reviews for the rest of my team so I just couldn't swing it this year. Guess that's why they pay me the big bucks (or something like that)... ;)

    I used to leave multiple days on the table every year also until I finally realized it's like working days for free.

    The company doesn't give a shit about my well being (overall) so why should I give up a benefit that I've earned. Fuck 'em

    Starting a new job on the 4th.... so it's good that I have something lined up but it's been a tough fall. Doesn't really feel like a vacation but it's good to know there is something on the horizon....yet a bit anxious about new company, new people, new clients, etc. Getting too old to keep starting over!

    Half day on Thursday and Off Friday, But I'm in collections work so this is always a very slow week and Next week is very busy. People get their bonuses and pay off bills.
