Do I have the right to be mad? ***PIOG***

 I have worked for the same accountant for the last 4 years now, EVERY year we HAVE closed down for 2 weeks at Christmas time ( I come in on Tuesday to do payroll... NO BIGGIE) today he informs me we are NOT closing down for Christmas, which means no break before the tax season starts!!!! I have had no vacation this year I need this 2 weeks off to regroup and prepare myself for the tax season. I am so disappointed right now. What would you do or say.. any suggestions? Am I just acting like a jilted employee?

Hmm that is a sudden change. I'd ask if you can take your personal time for those two weeks. I know our book keeper is totally run down during tax time. Maybe you could close for one week instead of 2. Anything!

Unfortunately, the workplace keeps changing due to the economy, and this year seems to be really bad. We are expected to work more, without all the added perks we are used to. However, bad economy or not, everybody deserves downtime and it does not hurt to ask if you can take some personal days around the holidays. Worst your boss can say is no, but at least you asked.
