Just a quick point. I had the same request, "please work for a day or two in the middle of your vacation".

I agreed, but gave demands (which were met), of them paying for the hotel, and all meals for the day (at nice restaurants), and of course not counting those days as vacation days.

So at the time of this vacation we ended up with a nice hotel room on the beach in Miami, had room service, etc, paid by the company. I did have to sit in the room for 10 hours each day, but my wife enjoyed herself quite a lot, and them paying the costs took some of the sting away.
