Is it too much to ask for a three day weekend every month? Somebody please do something significant so we get a big holiday every month. I'm dreading coming back from the holiday season and suffering through January–April

You can make a three day weekend every month.

Sometimes twice a month.

I am on PTO this week and my manager keeps Slacking, texting and emailing me asking questions that I believe can wait until next next week. She has also asked me to take a minute and send a quote. I am trying to do better and when I take PTO I’m focused on really taking time off and spending time with my family. Any suggestions on how to handle this?
