    "I'd just love to work tonight, but I might be a little late. I'm in Waikiki!" It's happened to me, too. Love the response on the other end when I say that!

    pre approved time off is yours 100%, and though the job may lack boundaries in calling people, you are in control of not answering the phone or returning the message. Sometimes the desperate calling person, is not the same person as the one who knows the HR policies and is aware you are either out on medical leave, or on a well earned and deserved vacation!! No guilt, right?

    Very true. Even overseas.

    I've gotten the call when I was out recovering from shoulder surgery. After I told the girl it was not possible for me to work, she calls me back 10 minutes later asking when I would be back. This all happened just two days after I called and told my supervisor when I was planning to return to work. Gee, I'm glad they listen.

    Bahaha, I absolutely got a call from my DON while I was at the beach last year... I just snapped a pic of the lovely waves and sent it to her, and turned the phone off.

    I was once called when I was moving from Arizona to Ohio to see if I could work!
