We all benefit from it, so I can't complain too much. However, I looked at the staff calendar today and one person - who is constantly doing this - has 4 "events" marked for the next two weeks.
In the long run, it adds up and a number of coworkers have mentioned it in the past....Sure, it's allowed, but there's a point where it translates into taking advantage of the system.

(The above was tongue in cheek - obviously the "degree" is way off, but the underlying principle isn't much different from the larger point fiscal conservatives have been making for years.)
