Wow. It's like I'm a teacher again [Nov. 15th, 2011|08:39 pm]
[Current Mood |shockedstunned]

I am only working half this month. No, that's not hyperbole. There's the last four-day weekend for Veteran's Day. Then there's the Thanksgiving four-day. The two normal weekends gives me 12 days off this month. Now tomorrow I leave for a three day Single Soldiers Retreat down in Dallas. That's fifteen out of thirty November days I have off. Damn. Teachers are the only professionals I know that have a near equivalent of vacation days set in their schedule.

Any government employee will have federal holidays off.

Incidentally, I *don't* get days off, because I'm an undervalued OPS tech. But as an employee of the University I'm expected not to work on those federal holidays. Guh. (I work them anyway, often, I just have to say I put the time in on a non-holiday. Because otherwise they would have to pay me overtime, and I'm not allowed to work overtime.)
