People should take whatever vacation they've earned, and then some. That as many as forty-percent of Americans don't really is a head-scratcher.
They think that if they take their earned time off that someone else will take over their job? What kind of fear do American corporations put into
their workers' point of view???
Two stories, for those who sit back and read these posts.
This just happened last week. I went into a hotel bar and a 30=something former American marine started up a conversation. During it he mentioned he
didn't get enough Vitamin D from the sun, because he had meetings all day long. I suggested that he move at least one of his meetings outside
everyday, for at least 20 minutes, so he could get sun. He and his clients could meet on a lawn, or a park bench, and have a snack while talking. He
said he'd never thought of doing that.
A long time ago I was writing up a newsletter for a corporation, and one of their press releases came to me. It talked about the honoring of two of
their employees, a husband and wife. Neither had missed a day of work for 25 years. That was literally one of the saddest things I had ever read. In
25 years not once did this couple say "Let's skip work today and go down to the beach" , or just decided to stay home. A husband and wife with 25
years of perfect attendance at the same company, what a disregard for living and enjoying life with at least the tiniest smidgeon of spontaneity.
