    Re: I've earned a few weeks off.

    Instead of hitting the big blue "Reply to Thread" button, look in the bottom right-hand corner of the post you want to quote and you will see "Reply with quote". Hit that instead.
    Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.

    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    Didn't see that the thread had a second page. Sorry.
