Re: In case you miss me...

I'm outta here tomorrow for my vacation to the east coast. Two solid weeks of fresh lobster, rolling hills, tourist trap/crap, camping and Bed&Breakfasts. mmm Nova Scotia, PEI, New Brunny... here I come.

My boss always told me I should designate someone to cover my role... in this case, I designate Bacchus to be the official sh!t stirrer while I'm away. Please feel free to redirect any flames, insults, inuendos, outright name calling, political commentary and flame wars to him. This is in addition to his usual workload of winding up baketech and LTL with political discussions, and in addition to his midget vs. donut-boy war with Chain.

I'll be back on the 17th with pictures in hand... thank you, come again.

Re: In case you miss me...

I'm honored! I will do my best to fill your shoes in your absence.

Have a great trip - sounds like you will. Is Canada anything like Australia, where you get about half a year vacation right off the bat?

HELLLLL no. 15 days to start... but after 7 or 9 years, they might bump it up to 20days. I can't wait until I go back into business for myself where I can set my own working days.

My buddy was deported back to France after his internship here. So he picks up a job at IBM France and for starters he gets 7 weeks of vacation!! Like what the heck is that?! That's almost two months... crazy. I'm so jealous.

Mother nature and I are tight. She's moved the good weather east with me for the week. Sorry.

We get 4 weeks a year annual leave and I think 6 payed sick days on top of that (hardly ever use my sick days) the sick days don't accrue.

How much do you guys get?

Re: In case you miss me...

ratter, if we here in Amarica luck out and get hired to a decent company, we are lucky to get 2 weeks (10 days) vacation to start. A lot of the shite jobs start at 1 week the first year, or even 1 week after a year . Yeah, it sucks! When I was over there in '89-'90 I think you still had the 'dole' goin' on. I know that is history now, but what a deal for those that had no desire to work!

Re: In case you miss me...

your lying to me
You are ruining my perception the the USA

Yes we still have the dole, but a while ago they brought a thing called work for the dole which means if you don't get a job within a certain time frame the send you out to do x amount of hours to do meaningless jobs to help earn your keep, but I still think some lazy asses still get around the system and do nothing cept smoke and drink all day.

Don't you guys have welfare or something similar for people that don't work?

Sorry to nomad for hijacking his thread
