There is no end in site to the working from home. There is no end in site to the social distance. Even when the end comes, will we be willing to risk a new outbreak? Will we be willing to venture out into the world of groups and crowds again?
Given that there is no difference, logistically, between a day at work and a day at home, and because there are no other alternatives to those two states of being, what good would taking a vacation day be?
The answer is, probably… none. It wouldn’t be any good at all. It would be a waste.
I just put in for a vacation day on my birthday though. I mean, fuck it. Why not?
