Please see my ski liquidation sale in the sale/swap forum.
|Actually I had a boss that did just that. I was going on a big ski trip (see other post) and explained to the boss(big corporation-not a small business) that next year I would be taking from Nov to Feb off without pay... He said "You can't"
I had the opposite happen. I was working for a large corp. that fell on hard times, they had the bright idea to save money by forcing employees to take vacation. Since I travelled all around the country, all the time for work, virtually on constant vacation, I accumulated 10 weeks of vacation. I also just broke up with my SO. My boss called me into the office at the end of November and asked that I take some vacation, I asked how much? he said at least 3 weeks, I said how about I see you in February? I left debt free with money in the bank, and came back 10 weeks later with every credit card maxxed, and a smile plastered on my face. I travelled from mountain to mountain booking a room when I got there. I remember one morning I awoke at 6 am, vaguely remembering the clerk saying breakfast was at 7 when I checked in trashed at 2am. I looked out my window at a beautiful mountain, and had no idea what mountain it was. On my way to breakfast, I got the strangest look from someone in the hall when I asked him where I was. YES, I was at lift opening.
