Anyone who uses any of their vacation days should be fired immediately.


Sadly, that's the mindset of a lot of companies in the US. Oh, you didn't get that raise and Johnson did? Shouldn't have used up all your vacation taking care of your sick mother.


Why is it Johnson? Why wouldn't Darnell be the one getting the promotion while Johnson was taking care of his sick mother?

Clearly you are racist.

Hold on. I need to tweet this and then tell everyone on facebook. I'll make sure that I get mad at them when they ask me about it, because I clearly don't want to talk about it.

I never did because I started my career this year and didnt work during college. Luckily I have Fri/Sat/Sunday off every weekend or else I would have to do that for the new consoles.

Why would you get fired for taking a vacation day to play a game? I could see if you called in sick when you weren't, but vacation days are yours to use.

Plan vacation days around the release of a game? Hell no, Murphy hangs around far too much for that to be a good idea.

I remember working at Sears a long time ago, some guy was there just basically to get money for a Dreamcast and new TV and quit right after that. Just three weeks in, one night after we closed, he walked to the bus stop with his Dreamcast box going "Shenmue 2, YEAHH" and I never saw him again.

I can't believe I'm the only one who has done more than one of those things.
