Good Deal! & Congratulations!

My wife and I were planning on retiring last April, but I've stayed on to finish a project where I know all of the old history and information.... We're giving the company until December this year! I can't wait!
That's good news, Hamilton. But beware the evil consulting agreement that often suddenly appears just before you plan to walk out the door.

Question: How much do you need?

Possible answers:
A: Somewhat more than you're paying me now.
B: A lot more than you're paying me now.
C: Whatever you can't afford to pay.

Hint: The correct answer is "C."

I gave my employer two months notice once I decided to retire. A couple of weeks before I was due to leave, they asked me to stick around for two more weeks, and I agreed. Then they asked me to stay another two weeks, and I was sure I no longer wanted to be part of that outfit.

I worked for 25 years at a retina specialist office. The doctor was a mensch, great physician, great guy. His wife that worked as the Practice Manager was a nightmare, a manipulative sociopath. Everyday was like walking a tight rope, never knowing if she was going to love you & shower you with praise or rip you a new one.

When I retired bridges were burned & I was glad to never go back. But when I sleep I've had crazy dreams multiple times about work. It seems like a high school drop out that keeps hanging around his old school, I dream I keep going back to work and doing my old job, no pay. The oddest thing is there always comes a point in these dreams that I yell out "I don't care if I get into trouble! I am retired & I am working for free. Screw you!" And agony turns a bit to relief.

I have a variation of that dream also: That I've never actually left my job although I've retired and I'm still working for no pay. However, I'm simply sitting at my desk as a guru giving out sage advice to people who enter my office. It always progresses to where the president of the company asks me to go on a business trip and I tell him/her that the company hasn't paid me in months/years and should probably start doing so along with travel expenses. That's when I always wake up.

:eek::ROFLMAO::love:
Edit: do you ever give out sage quadraphonic advice to your coworkers? Or maybe something about model trains?

Congrats and enjoy.
I always thought time would slow down with respect to having more time than things to do, but it doesn't work that way. The days still fly by and I still don't have time to do half the things I'd like to. I will say that part of that is because I don't rush to get things done anymore. If I have to cut the lawn it might take half a day. Before I retired, I would bust my ass to get it done in 2 hours.
