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*
