"Why retire ever if you're happy with what you're doing?" - katinga


Uh? Rush hour traffic? Having to get up in the morning? Not being able to take afternoon naps? Coming and going as you please? Bosses? Being told what to do and when to do it? Being interrupted? Having to do stuff that isn't that much fun and is often boring and repetitious? Lifting heavy stuff repetitively?

You obviously haven't had the kind of jobs I've had. And having to supervise people and be a boss is horrible! I supervised 13 people that took care of animals and every one of them thought they were doing more work than everybody else.

Being retired is heaven!
