Vacation - cellophane — LiveJournal
the story of an invisible girl
The protocol for recording vacation days where I work is: send a calendar invite to everybody on your team with the entry (for example) "Renniekins Vacation". That way we can tell who's supposed to be in the office at any time just by looking at our calendars.

I did this for a couple of days I'm taking off in April. Amy turned to me awhile later and said, "What if I don't accept your vacation invite?"

"Well, I'll just go without you."

Bernie said eagerly, "I accepted! I can fit into remarkably small spaces, I'm sure you can carry me in your suitcase."

Kris called from across the room, "Hey are we going to Mexico again?"

"No," I said, "We'll just be hanging out in Ypsilanti. My brother's coming into town, with his kids. You guys are going to love them!!"

"Oh. Um... I'd like to change my meeting response," said Bernie deflatedly. "And here I was going to offer to fold up into a garment bag."

"No no, the kids are great, we're going to have so much fun!"

"Yeah that's okay. I think we'll just stay here and work."

We do vacation much the same, but invite "Master". Every so often someone goofs and invites "Systems Group" which gets the kinds of responses you get.
