The first guy, about my own age of 57, asked me what my plans were, and I mentioned I was planning to retire within the next year.

He was shocked and angry by that response, and immediately said in tones that were contemptuous, "So you have all the money you will need for the rest of your life?" When I said, "Yes," he shut up.

This reminds me of a story one of my friends told me in college.

He had decided to 'wait' until marriage until having sex.

When he told people this he also sometimes got an angry reaction.

Usually it was from people who wished they had made different decisions themselves.
