I had gone more than four years without taking a single trip from work.
My business changed its policies right before I took our position as well as restricted paid time off to employees that had been with the business for more than four or more years.
Living paycheck to paycheck makes taking a holiday on our own dime completely out of the question. So by the time I was ready to request our first PTO trip, I was brimming with excitement. One of our friends from school had talked to me at length regarding the several of us taking a cross-country road trip. Every one of us hadn’t seen each other in years as well as it was something we discussed doing in school at length a number of times. At last we had the currency as well as the ability to take paid time off from our employers. He flew in from a few states north of our location, as well as we planned to take our seasoned SUV for the trip. I thought the mechanic had checked everything in his inspection, however apparently he overlooked the a/c system. Every one of us were on day 3 of our trip when the a/c system suddenly quit working. Before I could sort our thoughts, I panicked. I started looking on our PC for nearby mechanics, deciding to stop early in Nashville instead of Memphis love we had hoped. Unluckyly, our a/c system compressor was broken. I was hoping that it was simply low on coolant, because that’s a cheap as well as simple fix. Neither one of us had enough currency for the repairs, so that meant taking the motorcar the rest of the way without a/c. Every one of us still had a fun trip, however I’d be lying if I said we weren’t miserably sizzling the entire time after the a/c system stopped working.
