Just one question...
How does one manage to acquire that many sick-days? Most jobs offer
sick-days as a *small fraction* of days actually worked. It sounds
like the former Chief's position offered MORE than ONE-HUNDRED
sickdays for each SINGLE DAY worked. How'd he get that kind of perk
written into his contract?
And how would *I* manage to do so? I'd love to have a job that
offered me even one-hour sick-leave for each day worked, and let me
accumulate them until I retired.
