My work treats me so well that it only took me about 5 years to realize I was a total idiot for trying to complain about most aspects of it.

I call that process “growing up.” But seriously, you wanna come at corporate jobs? Let me just say 10 federal holidays, 15 VAC, unlimited sick, 7.5% 401(k) match, ability to wfh at will, and that’s before I have to even try to stop you with the things I like about the actual work I do. My sister is telling me she is thinking about leaving the restaurant industry and “selling out.”

I said, “what is it, the regular hours or the dependable paycheck that sold you?”

    unlimited sick

Pardon my ignorance but is that not the norm? Do people just show up if they're terribly ill but ran out of sick days?

I have to admit I can't complain either. 30 free days excluding federal holidays, free pension, free PT, yearly ski trip, holiday bonus and yearly bonus which adds up to about a month and a half of $$.

I think it's a shorthand for "unlimited paid sick days".

You're correct.
