My boss insists - last year he had to pay me an extra month pay because I didn't take vacation because he insisted I was 'required' at the office. That won't help him; I am still owed 15 days even after this minor holiday, and once more because he insisted I could not 'be away at critical times'. I love the effective christmas bonus ;)
To the joy of many, no doubt, I shall be completely webless for 10 days starting Friday afternoon, UK time. I am heading to the highlands, land of my youth (and completely frozen and barren at this time of year) in search of fine whisky.
Don't start a war without me !
