Americans are bad at taking vacation days. That’s a fact. But if the reason you don’t use your vacation days is because you think it’ll help your career if you’re there every single day . . . it’s exactly the opposite.

A new survey found that you’re MORE likely to get a raise or a bonus if you take at least 11 vacation days a year. Maybe everyone at your job sees how TERRIBLE it is without you and they realize they need to pay you more to keep you around?

Here are a few more results from the survey . . .

1. The main reason people pass on taking vacations is they hate the mountain of work that’s waiting for them when they get back.

2. 58% say their boss isn’t very supportive of them taking vacation time.

3. And the average person took 20 vacation days a year between 1976 and 2000 . . . but that’s down to 16 vacation days a year today.

Is it FALSE ADVERTISING when a woman wears makeup? I say no . . . because that would mean it’s ALSO false advertising when I stuff a can of green beans in my pants to create a sweet bulge.

A guy in Algiers, Algeria recently got married. And the very next day, he saw his new wife without makeup for the first time.

He said she looked so different that he didn’t recognize her . . . and mistook her for, quote, “a thief who came to [rob] his apartment.”

When he realized it WAS her, he was so MAD that he decided to SUE her.

He wants $20,000 in damages. Because he says she tricked him into marrying her by wearing makeup, and the whole thing has led to, quote, “psychological suffering.”
