    How do you get option days in the southern supplement? I have been there for 3 years and I only get 1 option day.

    Get the virus. You then have the "option" of being a puss and staying home for 10 days or coming to work like a man and calling this thing for what it is - a cold.

    Southern is one week after one year, two after two years, option week on year three.

    Then 7 long years to get a third vacation week at 10 years seniority. An extra week every 5 years after that.
