I used my summer vacation to go to western PA to see emerald ash borers. Does that count?

Bob J and Warren: I happen to know you two are both self-employed. Self-employed people tend to be the biggest offenders when it comes to forgoing vacation time. Skiing counts. Emerald ash borers, for a tree surgeon, seems a little like work. Visiting a healthy or well-cared-for specimen is probably a more positive approach to stress management. Thanks for the comments.

A lot of self-employed people consider their lives to be one big long interesting vacation!

A shy reader emailed me directly to say that some companies have a "needs of the business" clause that limits vacation availability for managers. How about a "needs of sanity" clause?

Quit that job TODAY! If you are that valuable, you should be an owner, not a slave!!
