I think this is spot on! It's pretty much my case anyway. Whoever came up with the Mon-Fri 9-5 idea anyway, three weeks vac if you're lucky! That's not my idea of living! Heck, I can't touch my 401k until 69 1/2! What a racket. I'm 26 and in the last year of a five year plan WOOHOO. I can almost taste it. Also I've been lurking around here for a while and want to thank everyone for the great environment and wealth of info here.

CD you did no wrong. Very tactful and you made me proud! There is a time to speak up.

This is an older thread, I wonder if the OP is still on schedule, if I'm not mistaken the " next season" is hear. Snider
