It’s called annual leave because it’s taken from your annual allowance of paid leave from work, but it’s shorter to type.
You know what’s even shorter? “Leave.” What business is it of anyone else whether it’s annual or not? Moreover, who cares?Posted 3 years ago
“I’m on leave, I’ll be back on [date]” is all you need, anything else is just your fingers bouncing up and down on those little letters.

I seem to be hearing about more and more people going on “Annual Leave”, is this in someway different from “going on holiday”?
I feel like I’m missing out cos I just have holidays, is “Annual Leave” better? Does one have to be much more important to get “Annual Leave”?

Actually I don’t even put “holiday” on my out of office I tend to put “Away from work” I know its longer but I know it yanks the HR Dept’s chain as its not fully compliant with their corporate world.
Though a work colleague did get into trouble for putting,
“If you want me I’m not here for the next 2 weeks, I shall be tazzing round the twistys of the Picos mountains on my motorbike & supping a few ales in the evening. So tough luck 😉 “Posted 3 years agoCountZeroMember
I get X number of days of annual leave. I get to take them off singly or in various numbers, but what I do with those days leave is entirely up to me.Posted 3 years ago
I had a week of my ‘annual leave’ last week. One day I stayed at home, fannying around, one I used to go get my hair cut*, the rest I went to various places.
Simple, n’est pas?
*Woman who cuts it is in Bath, doesn’t do Saturdays any more.
