A close friend who works with me looks like she will not be returning. I donated 50 hours of vacation time so that she may continue to receive benefits. My gift was the least I could do for a friend.
I was criticized for my generosity by some but I had the time saved to be generous.
I will have used 32 hours for the Jewish holidays so thats 82 hours of vacation time used in the last week. However, I still have plenty of time left and would have been in a use or lose situation.
It does not look like my friend will be returning. She will be missed and I hope her days will be easy.
