Re: Another vacation ?

DV must get over 7 weeks a year. I hate to begrudge people for taking time off but in America 2-3 weeks is average. The shows are not the same without David.

@Reever   I agree it’s not the same without David. I guess it depends on your job and how long you’ve been there, but I don’t find 2-3 weeks as average.

At my job, I can accumulate a maximum of 240 hours annual leave per year.

 

 

Anything above 240, I have to use, or loose by the end of the calendar year.

Maybe they have to get their vacation in before the holiday push.

Just tuned in to Down Home with Rick and turned it off to come over to forums because he was way too hyper....did not know that this is David's show.  Hope David can take all the vacations he is able to get...not a fan so never watch him and not aware he was away.....

2/3 weeks is probably average for someone working 5 years. If I’ve worked somewhere for 25 years I better be getting way more than that or I’d be leaving that job. And I’d be using the time because I earned it.

Maybe they should clear their vacation schedules with us ahead of time. On the bright side you won’t be tempted to spend money on a bunch of stuff!

Re: Another vacation ?

When I retired with 31 years service, I had 6 weeks vacation each year.  I'm sure David gets that or maybe a week or two more.

 

I also think a lot of the regulars are going to be off trying to get their vacation time in before they are there non-stop for the holiday craziness.
