    Do you have other things to spend your time and energy on that would be of greater benefit to you or those close to you?

    Work trip or vacation? If the latter, not sure why you'd be upset? Boss being gone for a week means the cat is away and the mice will play...

    Seems like that could have been better communicated...

    That makes 2 of us on the same day. Last e-mail sent on Friday @ 4:58. Original plan was end of March, but I stayed 1 additional month out of the goodness of my heart. There no truth to the rumor that Friday's plunge in the stock market is in any way related to our retirement news.
    Awesome! A guy on another board retired on Friday, too.

    Then again, my company also forced a bunch of people to retire Friday, as well...

    And I'm quite happy. Especially in the context of so many friends who also retired today, but didn't want to.

    A little help, please:

    I have painful hardware in my right foot. It's pushing up against the skin and another surgery will be needed.

    I am attempting to figure out options, considering I'm not eligible for FMLA and I have virtually no PTO.

    ​I know my company allows people to donate PTO, but it's a messed up policy.

    Thinking of hobbling away and looking for a job where I can do most of my work sitting.

    Theoretically, our number was 85, and I hit that sometime in May or June, but thankfully, once you hit 30, that's the trump card. And that was 2 months ago- I waited until my wife retired- which is next week.
