10:15 am ( EST )......June 24 th.......I will be done ! . 23 years - in this last job. . I have been taking ALOT of vacation days in the last month. Seems like I've hardly been working ? Technically, tomorrow is my last day - but I'm taking it off. . I was playing golf yesterday and I missed a call from my Boss She voice mailed that she'd like for me to arrive 2 hrs later for work ( and therefore, leave later ) I thought about it ? Maybe, they have a lunch planned ? BTW - I requested previously " Please, absolutely nothing for me leaving, I insist. " All I want to do is GET THE HELL OUT OF HERE !.......on my usual time ! So......I came in to work today at my normal time for the last 23 years . Lunch or no lunch planned ?.......I'm OUTTA HERE for good. My brain is already retired. I've already started my new life - Taking care of my 8 yr old + In Laws household + golf - and lotsa home projects I could never have the time for......like MY WIFE !....ha ha. . It's been a "rocky" relationship with my Boss and her secretary ( who thinks she's The Boss ). They were especially bad in the last few years - False accusations + " sinking " my chances for several job/salary promotions to name some things. And I had to have 2 legal agencies to write letters in my behalf - to give me some " protection " with my job. ( caused a ruckus with management but it was the smartest " insurance " I could have bought ! ) It was NOT pretty and it brought me much undo STRESS. So......my point is.......I don't owe anybody anything at this job ! Not even some luncheon with 2 or 3 people who made my life miserable and now want to act as if it NEVER happened ?......please ! ( I have already " said my goodbyes " with several co workers I consider good friends ) . Anyway..... I just never thought much about my "pension ". All those years it was coming out of my paycheck automatically - I never missed it or thought about retirement ? My brain still can't comprehend that with my pension + Social Security.... I will be making more money STAYING HOME than commuting ( an hour each way ) to work !?!?!? . Thought I'd share with VMB . . .
