We don't usually take a "vacation" as in going somewhere. But I am allowed to take around 25 days of PTO per year (more with approval).
We have this calendar app where you go in and request your PTO days. Management generally approves it as long as not too many people are off at the same time. The only rule is that you have to ask 2 weeks ahead at least.
Sooooo long story short every year in January I go on that app and I look for company holidays that fall on a Monday or Friday. And I take the Friday or Monday before or after as a PTO day. I go through the whole year.
So every 3 day weekend is a 4 day weekend and every 4 day weekend is a 5 or 6 day weekend but I only have to burn 2 days.
I only mention this because Monday is a holiday and I took Friday off. So today is my thirsty thursday. Let's drink.
