It never rains…

Today, it's my ninth day off work. I should have been back 4 days ago, but whilst resting a swollen knee at home, I got a hair stuck in my eye so badly that I had to go to A&E at 4 a.m. to get it taken out. Now work won't let me come back until the resulting conjunctivitis clears up. FML

Most of that has to do with Americans needing to work more hours in order to make ends meet, in addition to a highly volatile job market. Europeans get more vacation time than Americans will ever get

I can tell you don't live here in the US or they would have made you go back to work the same day unless you had a compound knee fracture and then went blind.
