50 years in the office.

Don't get me wrong-- I'm not making fun of this woman, and I'm actually a little envious that she's found her avocation.

Because I cannot for the life of me imagine having to go through the daily commute for over five decades. And on deadline, no less...


The book written on, "The Military Guide to Financial Independence and Retirement", on sale now! For more info see "About Me" in my profile.
I don't spend much time here anymore, so please send me a PM. Thanks.

Sounds like a very rewarding career and life she has had so far. You can just tell she loves what she does for a living. Most people should be envious.

Re: 50 years in the office.

I knew a guy from my previous employer. His dad worked for the same company for 55 years when he finally retired.

The son told me he was going to retire early as there was no way he was going to be a slave to his job. He said this after being on the job for 35 years with the same company. He did retire a while ago...after 37 years.

Not exactly what I would have in mind but I guess it is all relative.
Work? I don't have time to work....I'm retired.

Well, if he started at 18 that would make him 55, certainly better than average!
