If I stay in government I won't be able to retire with full pension until 62. The good old days of checking out at 55 are over. frown.gif

I might be able to retire at 50 with where I am now - it's a goal of mine actually to be able to, regardless of whether or not I actually do. It will be with a diminished income from where I am now, of course, but maybe that's ok

I will be very lucky if I can stop working at 65. I predict I'll still work just at a less stressful job.

I'm pretty sure I will be working until I croak. Maybe if we sell my dad's company I can live out my days as a man of leisure, but I don't see that happening.

I've got about 4500 in my checking account right now and that fact is worrying me a little bit.

I can't imagine wanting to retire. Which I guess is lucky, because I probably won't be able to anyway.

Another item for the "why we all envy L'incandescent's life" list.

That should bring the list up to one item.

I would much rather work and be happy with my life than retire and live like a pauper. This seems to be the goal of a majority of people (including my sibs who are mainly much older than me) where I grew up. My sister and her husband retired when he was 60 and she was 58. They sit around in their small shack of a house in a little town and spend an hour each day rolling their own smokes. They dress like shit (well, that's nothing new as they always dressed like shit) and drive a 15 year old Ford pickup. If they go out it's to the local Legion on fish fry night or something like that. Their annual vacation is to drive said pickup to Florida and live in a shitty motel for three weeks every winter.

I could go on with more examples but you get the idea.

This is something I never understood as well. People who live like Gandhi while they work for 20 years and live like Gandhi for another 40. Ridiculous.

Aren't you planning on having like 11 kids? Good luck with that.

There is this guy at my company who has been here since 1958. He just loves his job. Fucking prick.
