Americans are kind of terrible at taking vacation—and JetBlue is cheekily making fun of it with a selection of “office souvenirs” that point to all the memories you made at work rather than chilling on the beach or trekking through the woods.
A few of our favorites include a Memory Mug emblazoned with the email cliche “Let’s Circle Back On That,” a “Clean Whiteboard” scented candle and a “Paper Jams Are My Jam” commemorative plate. (Yes, you can really buy them, and most of them are a reasonable $10 or less.)
It’s a clever way of poking fun at a pretty awful cultural problem. Data suggests that in 2000, the average American worker took 20 days of vacation a year. In 2015, it was down to 16.2 days annually. While less than rosy job security certainly plays a role, losing almost a week of vacation, on average, really makes you think the whole country needs more time off. Indeed, other research suggests that not getting away could be costing you a raise.
The good news: at least you can finally get your work wife a “Don’t forget to CC Me” trucker hat.
