At the company I was, a few days before I went in holiday , I inform the stuff about the current status of the projects , any special needs ... ( a brief inform ; no one especially designated to be a backup person)

In holiday, the manager never call me; he put my colleges (I consider friends) to call me , because I can't
refuse them , if it's an urgent need.So I answer and through phone I guide them.(if I have my cell phone at me)


Now i work in anther company, where all are taking holiday , in the same time.Every body happy w00t

If the software/database is not launching the shuttle, or life and limb is not dependent on it, then it can wait until I get back. End of story. I also agree wholeheartedly with GandhiDBA's comment about "if you are working in any midsize+ organisation and you come back to any significant amount of work then you need to take a good long look at your colleagues and work out exactly what they do..." I couldn't have said it better... It's ratjher unfortunate in this industry that you tend to have 20% of your staff doing about 80% of the work. Most of the others are "deadwood" attending a lot of meetings and not doing a whole heck of a lot else, besides nosing up to the bosses. How they keep their jobs is beyond me at times, but then again, on second thought maybe it's not.:-D

We are forced to take all the 2+ months leave.

But I'm in Australia, so things are quite different here - we even have a socialist government (Labor one)! :-D

I tend to take several mini-vacations a year, like a four day weekends to section hike the Apppalachian trail or immerse myself in a home improvement project.
