:| Yesterday just got an "URGENT" email from my "team lead" saying that our "manager" has asked for dates of our vacation plans if we are planning on taking more than 2 days off at a time between now and. . . AUGUST 15. That's only about a month shy of asking for a half year advance notice of vacation plans. Holy hell!! Is it me or is this request just a little bit ridiculous? So I reply that yes I will probably take some of my 3 weeks of vacation during the summer but not all of it and I will try not to plan anything with less than 30 days advance notice whenever I do decide. So they start asking me "do you think it will be more like June? Or July? Or August?" Well I don't F-ing know! Let me narrow it down for you. . .It will be some time between 30 days from now and the end of the year. . .that's the best I can tell you. How much time do you guys think is typically considered a reasonable amount of time in advance to ask for people's vacation plans? Five months seems more than a little bit outlandish to me. A lot can happen in 5 months. . . Probably a 5/10 rant in most people's opinions I know. . .but I had to get it off my chest.
