    It’s good to see Elly happy about something, even if it was thinking the library folks missed her because they used her desk as a storage area while she was gone.

    I was a file clerk for 13 years but only took one vacation. It took me three weeks to catch up from that one week off. it all just piled up and by the time I got caught up I was exhausted and needed another vacation! After that I took mini-vacations by taking Friday and Tuesday off when we had 3 day weekends. It would be almost a week off but not so much catching up.

    I know that scene all too well. Sometimes one could wonder if it’s even worth taking a vacation!

    When your old school union(like me), you don’t care if it piles up while your on your 6-week vacation. They just pay you double(or triple) time to catch up when you return.

    If you really enjoy the work, you never need a vacation.

    I’m union also, But don’t know any union that pays triple time. And I don’t get paid vacations. We get some money in a vacation fund. But not much.

    MY thoughts for the day…. the library boss is pretty but not much of a worker for the library. I would have picked up the slack if someone was out.

    = > That’s just how I’d feel (frustrated and overwhelmed, but satisfyingly, refreshingly needed). Maybe that’s why “For Better or for Worse” has been my favorite comic strip since it first appeared. I identify with the characters so much. (I even have a son the same age as Michael.)

    Looks like she at least has job security.

    @summerdog

    I agree! While it’s nice to be “needed”, that’s ridiculous how much they piled up on her desk!

    Yes and they didn’t even ask about your child Elly!
