Knowing Neko, as he practically lives in my house via a headset most nights of the week, I'd lean more towards the idea that he's not had a holiday in quite some time...
It's worse now as there's literally nobody who can do my job atm. I'm not training anyone for what i get paid and taking 2 weeks off would leave a workload that would take 6 months to recover from.
Also, I've literally never heard Disco say he couldn't play games with you for any reason other than you were working/sleeping/seeing a movie/dealing with family shit.
I know what you are saying though, my job was like that when I worked in mining - I still took holidays but the stress caused by the backlog when I returned was ridiculous and it would take forever to recover from.
Current role is pretty good, most of my job is dealing with stuff on the fly - incoming families, departing families, families in distress, volunteer enquiries, volunteer training, volunteer resignations, rostering, ensuring day to day operations are running smoothly, front of house administration etc --- so really, very little of that can pile up as most of it needs to be dealt with at the time.
Also, my boss has had a metric shitload of time off this year with seriously ill family members which means I've been on call probably 26-27 nights of every month and she has been on call 4 nights at the very most, and I've kept her shit afloat whilst she's been absent so she is pretty good at picking up my stuff and dealing with it if I am away. But when there are only 2 staff members you really do have to pull together in a way bigger teams might not.
