YOU cannot have any time off at Christmas because everyone else has already booked theirs, it has emerged.
Both weeks, from Monday December 22 to Friday January 2, are completely full and there are already people on the standby list in front of you.
Joanna Kramer of Coventry said: I cant believe this has happened again.
Were six months away from Christmas. I mentioned it as a joke as a joke to Nathalie in marketing and she just looked at the floor.
These people are mental.
Senior manager Norman Steele said: If Joanna really cared about spending the festive season with her family, she wouldnt let this happen every year.
Its not as if the date of Christmas changes, and the leave book is open all year. Personally I make sure to book in no later than the end of February.
The situation is likely to resolve itself in early December, when half the leave is suddenly cancelled by panicky co-workers desperate for an excuse not to spend six days with their extended families.
