I had to laugh back in 2000 when my job was relocated to Texas and I opted for early retirement instead of moving: When they posted the job position opening on the company's "intranet" board, it said "Bachelor's Degree Required".

It was funny because out of those of us who were currently doing the job -- successfully -- only one had a degree. And hers was a Masters degree in Economics, which made her rather overqualified for what we did.

Thinking now that if I had to come out of retirement now, I'd never make it -- except maybe some sort of self-employment.
