I told myself, “This is nice, and I can take another one.” Unfortunately, I already exhausted my 4 weeks’ vacation, and 1 week personal leave.  I was about to toss away the card but the red highlight that 429 million vacation days went unused caught my attention.  At lunch break, I googled “Unused Vacation” – top 3 results were:
