    We can cash ours out, so I don’t take any.

    I wish we could.
    We can accrue it over time, but only so much, otherwise we lose it.

    It was that way at ups so you would take a week or two and sell a week or two back

    I always cash mine out at the end of the year. That’s a lot of extra money, especially when only taxes come out of it, not benefits.

    And then they expect it all the time so one of their favorites can lay down all day.

    It has it's upsides. I get beat on a lil time to time because they know I'll say yes but it has it's perks. When I was on the linehaul I got the newest truck with a 10 speed. When I deliver I always get a brand new trailer and get to pick my truck before they start handing them out to everyone else. If I need a day off they don't give me the pity speech....it has it's advantages.

    I had to think about it again. Technically we too CAN cash ours out. But not in one lump sum.
    We can only do it a couple hours per period.
    They PREFER that we USE them. I prefer to use them too.

    But that's just me.
    I use them to go deer hunting for a week, or take a week in the summer with the wife and kids.

    That sucks....

    When I put mine in the monday after next in that’ll be $3000 extra, in addition to a safety bonus and regular check, and 4 more weeks back in the pocket on my anniversary date in mid January. Can’t beat that... :)
