I don't begrudge anyone taking vacation time. If you work, you deserve time away from the job. That's what the days are for...isn't it???

They get as much time as is allotted in their contract.

I don't know about the hosts' vacation, but I used to get four weeks vacation, five personal days and around twenty sick days a year.   

 

So because you like a particular host, when is he/she allowed to take time off?

If you are bothered by a host on vacation you are watching too much QVC. Why would you care about David beeing away? He has worked for the Q for over 20 years and deservedly has a  good amount of vacation days. Good grief!!!

Re: Another vacation ?

Sometimes I wonder if they use the word vacation because the host needs time off for personal matters and privacy concerning the situation.

Before he retired, my DH started his annual vacation immediately after the Thanksgiving holiday--for the remainder of the year.  When he retired, he had 15-20 weeks 'banked.' 

Strive for respect instead of attention. It lasts longer.

David's agent is earning his/her money with that contract.  Good for David.  DH gets 7 weeks vacation.  I think people need more time to relax and rewind in our busy world.

The next time that I hear salt and ice together, it better be in a margarita!
