  7. You'll get a 2 week "mid course leave" just prior to the start of your phase 2.

    and the closing of the DAOR window! Mwhahahah!
  8. Well i guess thats better than nothing haha
  9. They're telling you fibs, leave is a right not a privilege, you have rights. Go in and let them know you can't be fobbed off. Demand your mandatory 2 weeks SUMMER leave, the clue is in the title.

    Indeed... As an entitlement, what you need to remember is that your Directive Staff (DS - AKA jumped up full screws on a power trip) will also want to exercise their 'entitlement' over summer too. They'll also have families and fat wives who'll be nagging them about taking time off to do their share of the parenting etc. So with that in mind, you can pretty much expect your August to consist of at least two weeks of trying to tap some skirt in a vain attempt of releasing some of them stacked up hormones, shortly before returning to coughing your yoghurt in the far cubicle after everyone else on your wing has gone to bed.

    Edited to add: just noticed by your username you might be female. In which case delete skirt, insert beefcake and delete yoghurt, insert reading 50 shades of grey and texting the woman in the next bed to you about her facebook status she just uploaded.

    In summary, yeah you'll get leave.
