In the Golden Days™ of Corporate, we could "carry-over" up to 240 hours of our vacation accrual (1.5x MAX) to the next year. But as with all things, the lean years whittled this down to 40 hours with no exceptions. Having been with the company 14-years, I accrue the max of 160-hours annually. Looking at my vacation balance today I have 92 hours on-the-books. Assuming I want to carry-over 40, I need to burn 52 between my on-call schedule, plant shutdown, other unix administrator's vacation, holidays, and weekends.

This year, my boss approved time off starting on December 15th through the end of the year.

Whatever shall I do with myself? *evil grin*

What a wonderful problem to have! :D

Working at a small business I accrue 10 days PTO every year and can carry none of it over.

They've adopted a new way of accounting in the UK whereby if people don't take leave, you have to account for it in the year end accounts. Naturally we accountants are lazy and my boss is CFO and he has outright cancelled the ability to carry any leave over with immediate effect. Still, I shouldn't complain - we get 28 days plus 8 bank holidays off a year.

*said very tongue-in-cheek*: You bastard! ;)

Enjoy the time off.
