yes, most don't get enough vacation at their work place. My husband has finally been getting 3 weeks, but it took him a few years at this corporation until he got that, and many many years before that when he worked at other places, he only got one week a year! When I worked at the university, we accrued one day per month (for full time workers) and even part-time for the equiivalent per month to the hours they worked per day, like 4. We could accrue it and not lose it at the end of the year, it rolled over. So that was good. In Europe they get more time off , at least most of the countries, and some of their benefits put us to shame, even maternity leave is longer and all paid in many other places, things like that.

I'm jealous Harlen!! I've never had a vacation, except for my 3 day honeymoon on the Cape and THAT was 10 years ago!! (Seperated now but the honeymoon was great while it lasted!!) I WISH I could get a free vacation!!!! LOL Sounds like you had a great time, where did you go?? I've always been a little scared of cruise's!
