Any one else not getting to take any/much time off for the Holidays? I was planning on taking Christmas week off because I get a two week break between classes (college night classes) but my current employer put the nix on that. I work for an engineering company and we are crazy busy for the foreseeable future so there will be no vacation for Christmas or New Years this year. I will get the Friday before Christmas and the Monday after New Years and that will be it for the year.

At least I have a job in this horrible Bush economy.

I get the monday after christmas off and I have to work new years day.

I could take time off if I wanted to, but I think its stupid to take paid time off just to hang around my retarded family.

I will take my time off in January, and go on a big snowmobiling trip or something.

+1

I will just take time off later since I have 4 weeks saved up and will get 3 more next year.

I get a little over four weeks off next year. I think I might just save it all and take off the month of December.

I am taking most of the time off between Christmas and New Years to spend time with the family and do some things around the house.

After that I will be busy as heck and working in NY, OH, IN, LA, NC, and TN for the rest of the year. My family will miss me and I will miss them. Money will be good though.
