Why is unlimited PTO a scam?
2 weeks ago I was asked by a partner if my PTO was flexible as a client sent us an urgent request. I stated no as I requested off 6 months ago.

Recently with workload change (I was planning to take time off eoy but won’t be able to do so), I really don’t have it in me to give four precious days to someone else. I’m about to head to airport soon and really really really don’t want to go. But I feel bad for cancel so last minute. This is purely on my bandwidth, not them…
