Let’s recap, they have been working full-time for 9 days and they feel the need to count down the dreadful days until their next massive 3 month vacation. “175 more school days, Ugh” NO! You do not get to Ugh that. Give me a “Another 60 hr work week and no vacation time accrued” and I will let you Ugh. At most corporations individuals request for a week off at a time max…that’s 5 days in a row. Look at my math skills at work again. Most supervisors react to this type of request with that ever loving “Are you serious?” stare followed up with, “I guess you can work late before and after your vacation to make up the work since your sister HAS to get married in Green Bay, WI”. I have a proposition for those teachers. You know the famous take your child to work day? Let’s take those teachers to corporate world for a day and see if after 8-10 grinding hours in a cubicle they still want to continue their precious countdown.
Guess what I am going to countdown? The number of days until you teachers and students go back on vacation and stop ruining my commute! Two can play at this game.
