House is officially on the market. Page has a LOT of views, unsure about any real interest at the moment.

Margaret finally talked to me and mentioned she was upset because I didn't ask about her job interview. She ended up getting the job, and was stressed about leaving her old job and negotiating salary and what have you, and that I didn't say anything about it.

Truth be told, I was so wound up about my house, I forgot all about it. I fell on the sword and it was all good.

Finished the Big Sur marathon, and did better than expected. Chicago is next in October.

Work blows. I basically got guilt-tripped for taking time off - no details necessary but basically a bunch of garbage went down this morning and the message was an HR-friendly "this wouldn't have happened if you were working." Wonderful.

This is why I have 350 vacation hours, and the max we're even allowed to have is 375. Every time I take time off, this is what happens. I guess the happy medium is take vacation days and just work on those days?

I need a beer.

Good luck with the house sale.

Horrible that you can't take time off without being guilt tripped. Everyone should be able to take a week or two for a holiday and leave the job back at the office. I believe the US is a bit behind with that sort of thing :/

As a European it seems really strange. We get between 4-6 weeks a year (depending on length of service) plus 8 bank holidays and just about everyone takes every single day with no guilt whatsoever and companies expect employees to take them. Generally they are taken on a rota so that there's still enough cover, although some industries close completely for two weeks in the summer and many office based jobs close Christmas Eve until 2nd January. I did read that some companies in the states are trying to change the culture and get workers to take their vacation time.

The guilt trip for taking time off happens a lot at my job too. It's frustrating. If you never want your employees to enjoy time off, then dont give them so much time off? Sorry you had to experience that today ... it is zero fun.

Mmm Beer :P

Wishing you luck with selling the home!

You earned the vacation, and you deserve to take it off. That is BS. :/
