I know people out there don’t have jobs and want jobs, so this is not to rub it in at all, but just me exclaiming how grateful I am to have this job. I do not take it for granted. In fact comared to my father’s job, I am grateful to be able to sit in a climate controlled room, in a comfy chair with access to a bathroom whenever I wish!
I had an injury this month that required taking 40 hours off from work. Then I got sick and had to take 2 days off for that the following week.
We get 5 holidays paid between Christmas and New Year’s. Then with my remaining vacation days that I have to use or loose, I will have worked a total of 7 days for this entire month – and still get a whole paycheck come January.
I am so very grateful, especially for the sick days. I have 55+ days still left unused that get to roll over (some can get converted to vacation eventaully).
