Your pet peeve is so true. After someone says that to me, I reply "You can
afford three months of no pay? WOW!".
You are also right about the every increasing shortening of the summer.
Lately, it seems like we have to go to some kind of training for the last
school year which is quickly followed by more training for a new school year.
So much for "vacation"! Whoopee!!! LOL LOL
