  • No. I mostly work during the day, so I can still go out at night. No point in not making money because it's my birthday.

  • Only if it is given as a day off. As a teacher that was not the case.

  • I have called off before, but I had lots of vacation and working a 24 hour shift on your birthday sucks!

  • Nope. I don't even request to leave early. If they offer, I still say no.

  • I usually do, I just use it as a PTO day. I get a lot of them so I think it is worth it to use one on my birthday if I can.
