.takeVacationDays() isn’t a method of Surgeon, so I don’t get why we’re calling it.

As I understand it, ‘.takeVacationDays()’ is a method that we are calling on the ‘instance’ of ‘surgeonCurry’ (in this exercise).

Can anyone else weight in and let me know if I am understanding that correctly?

Yes @runjaj2 you are correct. It is a method called on the ‘instance’ of ‘surgeonCurry’ to find out how many days he has left.

@byteblitz the .takeVacationDays() is actually a method of the Surgeon class


Oh, OK. Thanks for the help (you and runjaj2)!
