The vacation I have waited for, for over 12 years. It is here and I am finally using it. I normally just beg what ever boss I have to allow me to cash in for a weeks extra pay in place of my vacation, that way I don’t get behind at work. Everyone is comfortable in the office and I get a few extra hundred in my bank account. I typically cash out both weeks vacation as I near Christmas. That way I make sure I have enough money to get my kid and other family members the gifts they want.
There is a co-worker in the office I work in, Every year he takes a week vacation and travels up to watch some big Nascar event in what ever state it’s normally held in. Well, he heard I was leaving work for a while to take my first vacation since I was first employed where I am at. This guy comes to me and says to me ” If you are going on vacation, make sure you go somewhere”. My instant response was ” Um no!”. I don’t want the stress of paying for rooming and travel expenses and any other stress that may be encountered.
So here I am at home. This is perfect, the week is going so slow and I am doing nothing but relaxing and typing up content for my sites. Cat sitting in my lap. I am officially BORED! and loving it.
This is the job I need. I just have no idea how to word a resume that express what I am enjoying right now ‘ I want the day to drag on because I have jack squat to do.”.
This is the right way to spend a vacation.
At this rate, I will return to my job with no neck pains, no head aches and no back aches. Hopefully. i have been reluctant to take a break because I was scared of getting used to being lazy and I figured it would ruin me at work when I return.
I have to advise this to everyone. Don’t take the cash. Take a nap and get paid for it. It is worth more. Getting paid for nothing is more relaxing than getting paid double. I have found that when you take the double pay, they work you harder. So it isn’t worth it. Take the vacation.
Your employment status is what matters the most when it comes to having a future these days. Don’t ruin your ability to do your job and keep your career. Take a break, rest. Go back to work fully rested and full of steam.
