Usually standard around 47. But it basically comes down to almost 55

You'd best get yourself an alarm system, Michael, cause somebody's going to come a-robbin' you sometime soon...

T, I think we need to change jobs and learn how to control the traffic lights around the world - remotely, of course. Who says working for the government is a bad thing... (okay, we'd have to speak Dutch but I've watched Goldmember...)

----------------

I have 313 days of vacation and work 52 days a year. Okay, that's doing the grocery shopping and errands. But, you spend an hour at a WalMart and tell me that's not work. Then there's picking out the freshest vegies and meat which takes some talent. Pushing the cart is like having a mailroom clerk's job and they get paid for that.

Beerman should have 15 days of vacation. But, since we haven't quite figured out the owner's way of calculating vacation and sick time, it's looking like it might be closer to 18 days. He also gets ~9 days spread out over Easter, July 4th, Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Years. The calculations for sick days seems to give him ~11 more (and no one says you have to be that sick).

Tway, you can also ask politely and I will even give some of them to you;)
But on the other hand Isa: can I have some of yours
You should try to average the number of days of you and Beerman. You can travel a lot then;)
Although Wallmart was a bit of vacation already I thought

When was the last time you were in a WalMart???? It's a very scary place - especially if it's the "new and improved" Super Store.

Obviously it wasn't too bad of an experience - you're still alive and posting! ;)

Isa now returns this thread to it's originally scheduled topic before it's gone to far astray.

In Austria you are getting 25 days vacation per year. This is the legal minimum. Some companies give you a few days on top if you are some years with them.

I get 182 days a year off officially.

It actually works out to around 170 days off a year in practice.
Working offshore has it's advantages.
The downside is I'm at sea for 5 weeks at a time, but that's followed by 5 weeks off... paid.

Sometimes I feel like I'm robbing the company.
