Yeah tbh didn't want to use any more PTO since I'm taking a month off for Christmas. So I'll be charging the unchargeable for those 3 days.

Also side note a project can never force you to take PTO. Hit up your training WBS or something and do a bunch of online training

Project is going through a lull right now so I'm all caught up! It's a good problem to have haha. But still relatively annoying. Guess I can catch up with Netflix.

OP: What office are you located in? If in Metro DC, you're more than welcome to join me as a guest at dinner. We always have room for one more. Plus, it will keep me from having to spend the weekend with them. 🙃 🙋🏼 🙌🏻
