If you're British, get ready to have a ton of cheeseburgers in paradise. Brits are now entitled to 70 days of vacation. But you might want to think twice before leaving on a jet plane, because the extra time was thanks to a mistake in the Brexit outline.

The U.K. government published its Brexit white paper, which details their plan for leaving the European Union.

A mistake in the document makes it so Brits are entitled to a minimum of 14 weeks of paid vacation a year. The section in question was added to reassure workers that their rights wouldn't be under threat thanks to Brexit.

No word yet on if or when they'll be fixing the document.
