No sympathy. I'll sympathize when you've maxed out your PTO accrual bc you don't have time to take vacation. The fact that you've used all your PTO means you've had a pretty well balanced year...

You can always go negative. But we get next Friday off anyways, so it's just a week left.

I have a ton of pto accrued but too many projects too take it...

Take it off anyway. I'm negative 60 hours despite rolling hours from my annual 3 busy seasons. You only live once.

I'm a new hire I've only been here 6 months I didn't accrue that much PTO unfortunately

Hi everyone,
I was hoping someone could give me some advice. I’ve been taking care of my extremely sick (literally on the verge of dying) dog. I work from home so it’s not too much of a nuisance but I feel distracted all day long and can hardly get anything done because I worry about my dog. I feel like I’d benefit from a day off or even half a day off but I’ve only been working for my firm for a month now, plus I have “discretionary time off.” Would it be okay for me to ask for a day off?

Take a break from this crazy world and curl up with a good book! Not something you have to read, but something that you want to read because you chose it.

For anyone debating whether to go in house, I recently went in house, and the mental health benefit of not having to worry about billable hours is completely worth the switch. It's great not having to worry about catching up on hours when I'm out for a doctor's appointment, vacation, etc. It's more of a mental health relief than I guessed it would be.

Tell me if this is selfish or not. I adore my family, but since they're doing a very lowkey Christmas situation this year, I really would rather take a weeks vacation on my own. Obviously the holidays are about spending time with those you love, but I'm tired! And I see my entire family at least once a month for a group dinner. Am I a bad daughter/sister if I choose vacation this one time?

In June I started a new role, but recently out of the blue I was let go as "not a good fit". There were no warning signs, I wasn't on any type of goal program and had just gotten my first deal. I was also working on a few others. At the time my mother was very ill and in the hospital, thankfully she's better. The employer knew this and to let me go in this manner as well as it's the holiday season, it's really starting to bother me. I wonder if there's any recourse?
