    Default Accepted a new job

    Been a crazy week, this has happened very fast. I accepted a new position today. Fun thing about that is my current employer has a sweet vacation policy. At the time of separation any unused or accrued time will be paid out at the employee's base rate salary.

    So essentially I am getting a 3 week bonus when I bounce ... might have found my way to get a new bow ... just need to convince the ball and chain that I'm able to do so. Probably going to have to buy her something really nice to make up the difference.

    I'm almost positive that that is the law, not their sweet vacation policy. You earned the vacation so they have to pay you for it. Sick time, not so much.

    If she knows about the 3 weeks pay, just tell her they took a lot out in taxes. If she doesn't know about it... head for the shop before she does. Good luck with the new job.

    Hahha so true. Yeah she knows about it, I've already got plans for a compensatory gift for her. Still might need to pull some strings to make it happen, but we are also getting a pretty beastly tax return ... no way I could talk her into using that.

    Good advice. I think the only main thing should would have a problem with ... aside from the money ... is that she just bought me my Cheetah for Christmas last year. I shot the living snot out of it all year, hunted with it and love it to death. Just like to get another toy. I'm sure I'll hang onto the Cheetah for personal reasons and I can imagine many people looking for an 07 Cheetah anytime soon.
