I have noticed in my hall, and others, that to plan a vacation or to be away during any of the upcoming CO's visits was frowned upon. It was said you weren't being responsible and were disregarding the counsel to make that a week of "special activity."
Sometimes, it is not know when a CO will next visit. Maybe you plan to go away for a week and then it's announced the CO is coming the week you're away. What do you do? Cancel your plane tickets? Lose money on hotel reservations? Not take the kids out just to hear some old dude spout on about 1914?
Did this ever happen to you and if so, what did you do about it?
