So after 2 years I get 2 weeks of vacation at my work! yay! I put in for it last Thursday to take 2 weeks off in May. Yay!
Do I get my vacation? NO. Okay YES, sort of.
I get 1 week, but I have to take the other week another time. Not fair (I'm being a whiney baby here). I was really mad. Firstly, I had to say WHY I wanted 2 weeks, which in my opinion is no one's business except my own. If I want to take a 2 week cruise, laze around the house for 2 weeks, take care of a sick relative, or take care of my sick body, that is up to my discretion.
But Indiana state law says that my employer has a say in how I spend my vacation because those are fringe benefits. So no matter how I want to spend it they still have a say in it.
With that said, and my recent research (or actually my hubster's research) in the law I can do my vacation intermittently... but in MY opinion it is still none of any one's business HOW I spend my time off of work. I don't demand what they (meaning my supervisors) tell me how they are spending their time off of work.
I may blab everything in a blog on the Internet, but I only blab so much. I still have my morals and privacy. I like "letting it out" and I may talk a lot, but that doesn't mean everything I have is "out there".
I guarantee before reading this no more than 4 people knew I wanted my vacation, and I guarantee that no more than 3 people know really why I wanted my vacation then. Does it matter that I wanted it or that I wanted it for a specific reason? I don't think it does.
I guess one thing that makes me irritated is that I don't trust the person I had to divulge information to.
Lesson: Don't make assumptions about things you don't *really* know, and I will try not to assume things about you (by "you" I mean anyone). Lets just say it's a work in progress. My whole life is- and I hope it's an improving work in progress!
There I said my piece.
