My workplace is really flexible with holidays, which is one of the main things that make up for the underwhelming pay.
I work bank holidays as a standard working day, so I essentially get an extra 8 holiday days for free, then I buy an extra week's worth by salary sacrifice. On top of that, I can claim my overtime as holidays at time and a half, so I get three days off for working a weekend shift. In the end it works out that I could basically fuck off for nearly two months of the year if I felt so inclined.
I usually book a week off around the start of summer, another week mid-late summer, and another week near the end of the year. I spread the rest around whenever I feel like a long weekend or when I have to stay home to wait for a parcel and the suchlike. If I wake up one day and can't really be arsed, I can just book the afternoon off and work half a day. That's the tricky bit though- Temptation is so strong when you know you have the ability to do so, but you just gradually piss your holidays away for no real benefit, when it really wouldn't have killed you just to stay at work another four hours.
