I have to admit that I also think that I do a very good job of disengaging from work and managing my down time. So today when I received a notice from my firm's HR department regarding my vacation time I was wondering if I'd incorrectly filled out my time for the 4th of July holiday.
Imagine my surprise when upon reading the email I was receiving a notice asking me to consider taking more vacation time because I had maxed out the amount of vacation hours I was allowed to bank. According to the email, I need to schedule time off otherwise I'll stop accruing vacation time. The email went on to describe how having a healthy work-life balance is important and I should speak to my manager about scheduling time away from the office.
I suppose the email came right in a nick of time. One week from today, I will be taking a few days to enjoy more fun in Provincetown. I also have a week's vacation time scheduled for the second week of August.
I'm a lucky S.O.B.
