What a day! On second thoughts,the parent co of the pension plans I chair and administer wanted me to "reconsider" (meaning: "cancel") my early retirement notice. Called me up at 8:00 a.m to serve... notice accordingly. "Misunderstanding" first pleaded by the embarrassed parent co spokesman. "None" I said. He then pathetically moved on to say that there were " legal aspects" involved. I should have given him (them) a 3-month advance... notice (he said "reprieve") , not counting the current month "of course" , via registered mail, based on the Swiss Civil Code. I said " I had verbally advised YOUR hierarchy" (which I have). Said spokesman then turned emotional... parent co was "utterly disappointed" about blah blah blah, ... i.e. in effect , it is disappointed about truly yours being suddenly 57 years of age and having belatedly realized it . So am I. I expressed "unlimited empathy" . He then said that I was letting "my" retirees down. I said I would " soon be one of them". End of the story. I am out by May 31st.

When taken early, retirement tends to last longer, my friends:cool:

I envy you Jamie!!! I'll get to retire someday but not at 57. Quite honestly... I don't know what I would do with myself... probably get addicted to gambling or hook up with some 25 year old red head:eek:, or both..

Anyway Jamie... All I can say is, you must be a smart man to be able to retire at 57! Man, I'm 43 and still have two kids under 5!!! At least I don't work very hard.:rolleyes::D

Right On!

Beachsidebiker: Job will soon be terminated , on my own volition. Alarm clock will soon be burried, after a short ceremony (i.e. I am going to crush the f***** thing), amongst wiffie's admittedly splendid geraniums. 18-year old son will stay, i.e. if he wishes to. Way too late for either abortion or adoption, anyway. Money? I wil soon have to learn to cope with less. Wiffie's geraniums to be replaced by a single cactus, for instance. :cool:
