FWIW my stepmom works for GM, meaning right now she sits at home all day and gets paid for it. Shes been laid off for like a year and a half now I think. Not bad getting paid to sit at home. It also explains why GM is doing as horribly as they are.

I get 30 days a year Vacation, but that includes Holidays (we're a 24/7 operation here). It was 23 days, but at 4 years, it got bumped up to 30.

I have yet to use all of it, and it'* use it or lose it dangit....
