No Vacationy

We got another school-wide reminder from Hammer. She wanted us to remember that we teachers are not allowed to enter “Vacation” for the reason that we would be absent for a day of school because that option is only available for employees who work 226 days per year. I’m guessing we’re not counting my twenty hours I work on weekends, grading.

I know; I know; teachers get summers off—blah, blah, blah.

But is it really a summer off when I have to tend bar at Dave & Buster's to make sure the bills get paid? What if the nightshift manager failed your class the first year you taught? How about then?

Look, I know it’s just a formality that we technically can’t claim vacations, but don’t we have enough reminders from reality about not getting a vacation that Hammer could have kept this to herself?
