I just learned that our usual server, at the pizza place that my wife and I frequent about twice per week, has no personal days--none. I found this to be utterly bewildering. And highly irritating. Although I am well into retirement--it has been almost 14 1/2 years now--if I had been applying for a job during my working lifetime; and if the interviewer had indicated that there were no personal days allowed by the company (even if the hourly wage were substantial), the rest of the conversation would surely have gone something like this: Me: "Back up just a little, please. What was that you just said about personal days?" Interviewer: "I said that there are none given." Me: "It sounded like that is what you said. I just could not believe that I heard you correctly." Me again: "I think that we have discussed all that we need to. But I do wish you a pleasant rest of the day." And then I would have simply walked out. Briskly.
