Have you ever been around any of those people that seem to see the bad in everything?  Just the other day it was announced at our company that the vacation policy had been revised and for the most part there were across the board increases in vacation.  Along with that they added an accrual policy for our yearly vacation earning.  Simply put, each time your vacation year starts you have accrued zero of your vacation days, each month you work that year you accrue a percentage of your vacation.  You can still use as much of your vacation right off the bat if you choose, the way the accrual comes into play is if you quit or get terminated for a reason.  Which means the company only owes you vacation you have accrued for that year and if you used over that you owe it back to the company. If your job is terminated due to layoffs the accrual does not apply and the company will pay you for all your annual vacation days.

Now don't forget that first I told you that this policy increased all employee vacation time across the board.  The other day I actually heard someone say:  "Did you see how they screwed us on our vacation?" And I thought "what the crap?".  How on earth did the company screw any employee in good standing by increasing vacation days? 

These people don't look for positive things.  Whenever something happens they immediately go into defensive mode and try to find how they are getting screwed.  I feel sorry for them.  That kind of living can only lead to paranoia.

Until next time

I've also noticed the the company there are people that have it in their minds everything the company has done or will do is going to screw the employees. I totally agree 100% with your suggestion that this is a bad way to go through life... kind of like the people that are constantly looking for something that's offensive to them... just ease up and enjoy life
