xl5150: unyon: FTFA: Nobody expects two week vacations anymoreReally? Is this now considered a luxury in the US? If so, that's pretty sad.If someone was working for me and took two weeks off all at once, I would be sure to get rid of them at the next round of layoffs. If they're going to disappear for two weeks and leave the rest of us hanging, then that shows they're not devoted to the team and they can't be counted on. There are a lot of people out there looking for jobs and if someone isn't serious about their job it isn't hard to find someone who would take it seriously. If they take off for two weeks and things go smoothly while they're gone, then it's an indication that they're not that essential and there is no reason for them to be on the payroll since we can function just fine without them.
HotIgneous Intruder: I had a Gannett job where we just wore catheters at our desks.
not5am: My Bologna Has A Maiden Name: Cheer up, America. When you're unemployed, every day is a vacation!reminds me of a doug stanhope joke/rant about how gov't/people should be working towards zero employment, creating a society in the long term where no one needs to work.
Le Bomb Suprize: I'm with ya on this one. And lets not forget bathroom breaks too. If you can't count on your employee to use the bathroom before they leave the house I doubt they have the discipline to to their job properly. In fact, I'm all for reducing or eliminating bathrooms in the workplace in favor of adding in another cubicle or two and increasing production.
