First World Problems

by Lizzie J

Pretty much everyone where I work accrues paid leave time faster than they can ever use it… and when the fiscal year rolls over, everyone complains about how frustrating it is to try and be a responsible employee and not take time off, but also not lose the time.

It makes us all sound like privileged assholes to complain about such a thing, but it really is some cognitive dissonance to deal with.


But really, we’re privileged assholes.  Now I’m going to go to my (employer-subsidized) gym to kill time until I pick up my (employer-coordinated) bag of farm-fresh CSA goodies to take home on the bus that my employer pays for me to ride for free.  Life is ROUGH.
