Very French moment just now. The secretary called me up front to yell at me for not taking my vacation days. I said "I just took two last week for jury duty!" She said that that was covered separately, and that vacation days stop accruing once you've maxed out, as I have.
Eh, I don't have kids, I don't have a house to take care of, I don't go on expensive vacations, I don't get sick often. What do I need 19 days a year for?
