Holiday or Vacation?

July 19th, 2005 by Editor B

I’d originally put in for last Monday as a vacation day. But I came back from our trip a few days early, and was ready to go in to work — only the University was closed because of Hurricane Dennis.

My first thought was, “They’re going to screw me. I deserve to get that vacation day back, but they’re going to screw me out of it!”

Then I calmed down and for some reason I actually thought, “No, they’ll be reasonable, and I’ll get my vacation day back.” I don’t know why I thought that. I must have been momentarily insane.

Yesterday I got an e-mail from HR that confirmed this:

You’re crazy if you think you’re getting that vacation day back.

So I’m getting screwed. But somehow I no longer care.
