I worked Christmas Eve & New Year's Eve. Today was a long day (19 hours)and I wrote an email to my boss that I'd like to be off next year. I have a way of being matter of fact sometimes. As my coworker and I were discussing how next year we would like to be with our families, I looked at calendar and fired off an email:
Subject: Requested days off
Thursday December 24, 2015
Thursday December 31, 2015
This should satisfy the required 2 week minimum.
