Please, Take Your Paid Time Off (If You Have It)

My paid time off is all one pot — we don’t get separate sick leave, holidays, and vacation, it’s all Time Off With Pay. It’s a real pain since it means you always need to account for which holidays are coming up or risk going into the negative (plus it’s a disincentive for people to actually stay home when they’re sick). I always have a few days’ cushion but I also pretty much always arrange my travel so that I get comp days, so that I can maximize my time off.
