hi can someone tell me what happens when all your vacation days are used up how do you get more or is that it for ever? does it start at the beginning of the year? please if you know then let me know.many thanks brian
yep. and there is nothing to stop you from spitting on a child in a stroller either. :) you choose.
I think if I spit on a child in a stroller I would get in trouble with the authorities, since it is illegal (at least in the US, spitting on anyone is assault).
It's one thing to say "those are the rules." But you're the dude who makes the rules. I suppose I should have been more clear in my original post. There's nothing to keep anyone from burning their vacation time at the end of the year whether they need to or not. The rules could be written to make this less likely, e.g. you start out with 2 weeks vacation and for every week that passes you get an additional 1 day that expires in one year, total vacation time accumulated not to exceed 40 days. Make up whatever numbers seem more fair to you.
One would think we players could regualte ourselves. The last thing we need is micromanagment. I get enough of that from the vacation policy at work.
I never said anybody was abusing the system or gaining an advantage on their opponent. I did imply it would be rude to go on vacation indefinitely for no other reason than the vacation days will expire so there is no drawback to doing so. Erik seemed to agree with me on that (or I misinterpreted the comparison to spitting on babies).
Since we're in agreement that it would be rude (well, you can still disagree if you like), and I believe people will take advantage of it if they realize they can, I simply wondered if it wasn't better to make the policy slightly different so that this feature is removed. Notice that what I said doesn't reduce the total number of vacation days a player gets (in fact, it would probably be slightly increased in most cases), it just alters a little how they expire. So there really isn't any new restriction or micromanagement of how players take vacation, except in the end of year use it or lose it case.
