    I love the vacations where you just stay home and do nothing. Don't get me wrong, going away is cool too, but its nice to stay home and do absolutely nothing! Its easier on the wallet too. I'm on vacation this week also.

    I just realized something. I'm vacation from UPS but I still come to browncafe to read and write about my job. How sick is that?

    UpstateNYUPSer Very proud grandfather.

    Yes there is--2 weeks. I start mine 6/23 and don't come back til 7/7.
    The 2nd week will be spent moving my daughter and her boyfriend, What's His Name, to North Carolina from Albany, NY. I get to drive the U-Haul thanks to my non-CDL.

    Cement--relax and don't overdo the do completely nothing.

    I too am on Vaca! Last week was spend in Surfside Beach, SC at the same ocean front home we've been renting off and on for the last 15 years. This week will be spent doing anything I want!

    While we're on the subject of vacations. My seniority date is March of 84 and I have been told by a few other drivers that I am due my 7th week this year. When exactly am I due my 7th week? I always thought it would be after my 25th anniversary, March of 09.

    The way I understand it and that of course means nothing, is you have just celebrated completing 24 yrs and are working on 25, therefore, you now get 7 weeks vaca. I will have completed 24 in sept, and thats the way I was told after getting shorted for a yr when I hit 20. And I did get it, so it makes sense, I should have got it when I completed 19, going on 20. Understand? Its confusing.

    July 21/Aug 3 here. Oh I can't wait. Looks like I might get a few extra days though. We have a panel 14/18 and my grievance should finally be heard, so it looks like I will be off July 16/17/18. Not going to complain about that. LOL

    I call those planning vacations. I take a major project I want to complete. I plan it. Study it very carefully. Try to take a different perspective over a couple of beers here and there and If I plan carefully my week is usually done by the time I'm ready to implement.:happy-very:
