Little calculation:
you have probably around 20 days holiday per year.
After 60 year old everything is more or less a gift, so I wouldn't count on it.

Let's say you are going to work 30 years. That is 600 days to do whatever you want.
It's less than 2 years.


Try to count how many days left of freedom.


Suddenly all the things I have to work on today have lost all priority

    2 days off per week, 6 weeks vacation / year, +public holidays, i don't think its that bad

    @ItsNotMyFault I got 44 Days vacation :P
  • 3
    2 days for weekends (104 days per year)
    20 days for annual leave (124 days)
    11 days for public holidays (135 days)

    365 - 135 = 230 days a year

    -10 days for paid sick leave (220 days)
    This is 2/3rds of a year working, or if you look at it the other way, 1/3 of the year paid to not be at work.

    Some years may alter the calculations, but let's keep it rough.

    Now let's add this up over 30 years
    That's 6,600 days of working out of the potential 10,950.

    4,350 days off (or 11 years) and your complaining?

    @C0D4 weekend are so short and so often working...I start to get the holiday feeling after one week straight.
    Maybe it's just monday.
    Or maybe is that I'm just counting how much is left for me now of this 11 years
