But dang, I almost wish that the vacation debacle could have come up somehow. So you'd have the pleasure of saying "this could have been avoided if you'd only kept your word and honored the commitment that you made regarding my time off. But....sucks to be you! You're still here, and I don't have to put up with it anymore! Hee hee hee!!!"
Of course, I know that you couldn't say that, but really, don't you just WANT to?
Good for you, though, for the low drama aspect. Whew!
