    Nope. Peak is blacked out for all vacations and personal holidays. But if you have a good relationship with your bosses you may be able to wiggle one in...but I think payroll is also not allowed to pay out holidays and vacations during peak. Peak has always been hallowed for UPS.

    My birthday is Dec 24th. Always took two days after Christmas. When we used to get Christmas and the day after, it worked out nice.

    BTW;
    No one gets their birthday off as a paid day at anytime of the year, unless they can take a personal day.

    Yeah, no crap. I never heard of getting off for your birthday in the 18 years working for UPS. It would be nice but it just won't happen. I take a whole week off for my birthday every year with one of my 4 weeks of vacation

    You get your birthday off if you are 10 years old or younger.

    I am a veteran--do I get Veteran's Day off?

    I work with a lot of turkeys, and they do get Thanksgiving off.

    Dave, you can take Veteran`s Day off - unpaid, if you want, with notice. We have a couple guys who do that every year.

    Only if it lasts more than 4 hours.
    Then you must call your doctor!

    That's just wrong on so many levels. Guess that's what makes it so damn funny!

    If we ever got erection day off, I would get a 90 day refill of Cialis!
