Default Playing hooky to cruise

Looks like for some people the urge to cruise is quite powerful.

Wow, what some people wont do...
I am fortunate I guess, I just ask for a few days off around an already scheduled Christmas or March Break week off, and no problem.

I was allways allowed to take my vacation when I wanted to during my working years.
Now that I am retired I can cruise anytime that I want to.

There are many work places where you have to plan vacations far ahead of time, and even then, the time requested may not be available. Once I left corporate, I was able to go when I wanted to, but within that company, vacation rules are rigidly followed.

You can see that in postings, when something happens regarding a cruise, and, the comments about losing that time adds to the aggrivation of the situation.

The people in the article...had a "gotcha" moment!
