    I've heard many people at work saying they need to take vacation because otherwise they'd lose it. We're allowed to carry up to two years worth, so for people who've been at the company for 20 years that's eight weeks of vacation. I cannot fathom why you would choose to accumulate eight weeks of vacation.

    That's not a vacation, it's a sabbatical. Eight weeks off paid to go on some epic adventure would be amazing, but there's zero chance that's what any of these guys are doing.

    We have a statewide shelter-in-place but the remodel down the road hasn't stopped - there's a crew of 7-8 guys there 6 days/week. Construction is technically exempt but adding a master suite to your second home doesn't exactly seem like an essential service.

    When I left my last job I cashed out 12 weeks of vacation. Had to take a day and a couple hours off every two weeks to avoid losing any. Helped pay for the move and part of the down payment on (what is now) my ex wifeís house.

    When I say it like that, I should have taken the 60 days off.... but it wasnít a bad exit strategy.
    focus.

    My vacation doesn't carry over. I make a point to use every bit. And on the rare occasion something came up last minute and prevented me from doing so, I have gotten management to give exceptions, which they can do in certain circumstances.

    Non-essential here. Local authorities have posted a number on FB for calling and reporting such activity. I could see allowing a person laying tile or doing plumbing/electrical etc. but a whole crew would be pushing it IMO.

    I get 7 weeks a yr and it doesnít carry over so I use it
    Of course they prefer us to not take more than 2 weeks in a row but sometimes we stretch it. But lots of powder days and long weekends all summer #shitthatdoesntannoyme
    You canít really chk out of my job for more than a day anyway tho so I guess itís rarely ever fully vacation but Iíll take it

    We started a renovation a few weeks before everything went down so we just want them to give us flooring and a kitchen.
    Been sheltering at home but only in one bedroom and been using a toaster, grill and mini fridge. Not fun. When they leave we have to come out and clean everything but the house was unlivable so we just need it to get to a livable point. I came down with shingles by of all the stress. Not fun.

    I cringe at the thought of shingles. Hope they resolve quickly

    Sorry, b-bear. Wifey had it a few years ago, but not a debilitating case. I had it when I was 14, which was pretty rare. Hang in there!

    seems like a dangerous thing to do in front of a guy with a meat cleaver.

    Newer vehicles without tow hooks on the frame. WTF, how are you supposed to get towed out of a snowbank if you don't have somewhere to hook a chain or strap?

    Did the tow truck drivers lobby the vehicle makers to not include these on vehicles anymore?

    Had to help pull a neighbor's vehicle out of the fucking GUTTER (shitty tires) and ran into this. It was quite irritating having to crawl in the snow/slush to wrap the chain around something that looked sturdy enough to tow from. And get this - it was a fucking JEEP.

    The seven weeks bit sounds pretty awesome, but the fact you can't check out sucks. I'd hate that.

    To be fair - it was a SHITTY non-Jeep Jeep... but still had a "Jeep" badge on it. It was a pile of shit.

    Other than the Wranglers, and possibly the Grand Cherokee, the entire rest of the Jeep lineup is a bunch of crap. I would be surprised to see tow hooks on a Compass or Renegade.

    Yeah. It was a POS. Shit - it was difficult to find ANYTHING to wrap a chain around.
