A friend of mine was so infatuated with his impending retirement that he counted the nanoseconds until he could punch out for the last time. His “I can’t wait to do this” list was endless; his vivid images of a stress free life had the rest of us working stiffs green with envy.
And was retirement all that he dreamed of? Not so much. Oddly enough, he's often bored - and actually misses the office (sometimes). His brain, he jokes, is turning to mush.Submitted by Linda Haase on Tue, 05/08/2012 - 17:08
