Has anyone requested time off work?

Red Dead Vacation  

129 members have voted

  1. 1. How many days have you requested off from work or school to play RDR2?

I got Friday to Monday off.... but those days I'll be travelling to a longtime friend of mine, so I will just have the time to buy the game, leave it at home and then leave it. Maybe I'll take the physical map with me just to glare at to ease my pain during the weekend. However, the game won't go anywhere and it's not everyday that I see this friend of mine, so there's no question about it.

Haven't had a real job in over 2000 years, so let's just say I got a little free time on my pierced hands.

No, because I'm not like you weird white people and your weird rituals. I have bills to pay and places to be. I can wait.

Wow. Racist much? Most people have PAID VACATION, so bills are still paid and no income is lost. But I’m sure that’s a quality of life only afforded to us weird white people right? 🙄

Not a single day requested. Business before pleasure here. I'm not in a position to be able to prioritise a game over work. 

 

To those who call in sick to be able to play the game, Karma will bite your ass one day for it.

Lol, this is one of those threads where I'm sure some are hoping their boss doesn't have a creepy stalker in them. ;)

 

Didn't take time off as such, but put in a shift this past week or so to get ahead and I'm now free from Thursday lunch until Tuesday afternoon. Happy days!

 

Do feel it's a bit harsh some don't like/understand how one might just wanna pull a fast one once in a blue moon, I get IRL first and all, but if you can pinch a day for you, bloody enjoy it I say. Life's too short to do it all by the book. :)

I have a database project I'm working on for my studies. As much as I would love to stay home I think that's a bit more important. I'm going to wait until midnight and hopefully any patch/update wont take too long so I can play for a little while. I have the whole weekend though so no worries.

How do you even have a boss if you're self-employed?

The only thing that might bite anyone's ass here, is you believing in karma. There are no rules man, it's a freakin' jungle.

And this, is how you get banned (after doing it over and over again before).

I work in trade as a plumber, the firm I work for is contracted to work on bigger sites, my work contract states that I work “0+ hours” which means I’m not obliged to turn up for work if I don’t want to, I get paid for days that I work, I get no sick pay or holidays either, also the firm I’m contracted to can fire me at any point if they want, of course within reason. I will never actually meet the boss of the firm I work for, my “bosses” you could say are the site managers etc. Who don’t work for the firm I work for.

 

So technically, I don’t have an actual boss like most ‘employed’ people. I’m only contracted by a firm/company to work for them for a set amount of time, or till a job is complete. If you’re from the UK and work in construction you’d understand.

I mean from a point of view, yeah, but here in the UK that’s how it works, obviously you can be fully employed with a firm/company, but I work for an agency and they give me jobs, which I turn down or take. I don’t like being self-employed to be honest, there isn’t a steady flow of work sometimes.

 

But I’m getting off topic now lol.

I'm getting it Thursday night, more than likely playing til dawn, "getting up" then heading to Chicago[from St. Louis], the next day to West Virginia, then Sunday and Monday will be Red Dead days.  Back to work Tuesday. So technically, I'm taking 4 days off, however 2 of those are for my "other job".  I know I'm gonna die on a mountain on the way back from WV, 'cause irony is cool.  Anyway, that's my weird white person ritual.

You know, if I didn't work in a skilled trade, I would have turned down Friday's gig.

 

As of yesterday at noon, I can't play until Day 2. Which is fine. It's easy to go dark when you're lighting some sh*tty film lol

I’m luckily getting a three day weekend.  Starting on Thursday night, I don’t think I’ll leave the house for 72 hours.

 

Edit:  72 hours is three days?  RIGHT?!

Tomorrow (Thursday) is my last day. I plan to come home, go to the weed store, get high, go to sleep. Wake up at 11:50 to mentally prepare. Then game on through the night. 

 

Friday being the only day I have off, hopefully the weekend will be enough time for me to enjoy

I work at the Hunts Point Produce Market in The Bronx, NY. 

 

I work from 10 Am - 6:30 Pm 

 

Sunday - Thursday! 

 

So tomorrow is my last day of work for the week, and my GameStop is in a mall so they have to release the game early, line starts letting in at 9PM so I’m free from there to Saturday night!
