Re: Retirement from workforce3 weeks ago
I got a hoot out of all of the people who told me I was a loser for staying in my shipping job...
This was during the high tech boom at the turn of the century. When it all went bust, the same knobs came back to me and told me I was 'lucky' to have a job! lol!
At 51, I've lived by the seat of my pants my whole life. I'll probably work till 60. Fortunately, my wife is an only child and will inherit 2 estates on her side. I've got a crazy rich bachelor Uncle on my side. Combined with our good pensions, we should be set over the next decade or so.
I'm still hungry, though. Got an 'out there' money-making project I'm working on for later this year.
There are very, very few bad jobs. Virtually every one with the possible exception of the undertaker can provide a connection to something else!
