Duvet Day - Captcha Challenge
So doing another captcha challenge and this time, I got 'duvet day'.
The phrase 'duvet day' was first used in the UK in the 1960s. It pertains to a paid day's work wherein the employee is allowed to stay at home to rest and relax. The term 'duvet day' also pertains to a day of leave from work that an employee is allowed to take on such short notice. Usually, vacation leaves are filed and plotted two weeks in advance so that business continuity is ensured. Seldom times do we see an employee asking for a vacation leave with only a day in advance. Where I work, the standard acceptable time to file a vacation leave is two weeks. If you file a vacation leave and it does not meet the two week cut-off, there is a chance that your leave will be declined.
Anyway, the figurative use of the term means that employees can play hooky with their company's blessing. How cool is that right? So how about you my fellow PPers, do you have 'duvet days' in your work?
