Americans need to get a life

I would love to spend some time living in the United States, but one thing I can never get my head around is how Americans put up with their measly two weeks vacation. Now it seems, they are reluctant to take even that!

I can understand why so few Americans travel abroad, their own country is so big, but don't they want to take some time off to explore their own backyard? Americans really need to get a life. Working harder doesn't necessarily mean that you're getting more done. As anyone who has taken a decent vacation can testify, you feel a lot more refereshed, and have a hell of a lot more energy. I'm glad to see that some US employers are finally waking up to this!
