Unfortunately, I only use my days when I can't take work anymore. Smh!

I tend to use it to take Fridays off here and there for 3-day weekends. If you’re a big skier (I am too), why not take those 5 days and break it up over a few more ski weekends? The mountains are much better during the week when less people are around.

I just feel like it "looks better" to my supervisors if I were to take on extended break over breaking up the 5 days.

I use it to take off time between Christmas and New Years

I carry over time, but I am also a fan of 4 day weeks in the summer or using near a holiday
