Re: Christmas Party Humor

Our parties are the cheapest my boss can get away with.
The only good part is I usually get the night off. This year was going to be my last but I got tricked, the boss decided not to have one.


Work is something you do to get enough $ so you don't have to....Me.

Re: Christmas Party Humor

As I mentioned in an earlier post, I attended a holiday related gathering at my old company. First time I had been back since retiring 7 months ago. No surprise to you retirees who have done something similar, I got the "But waddya DO all day?!?" question over and over again. My response: "I have a full time job managing my personal entertainment."

Thank you Nords, I think that little gem came from you.


Numbers is hard.

Retired in 2005 at age 58, no pension

You're welcome!

It's the avocation where I've reached my Peter Principle.

I don't spend much time here anymore, so please send me a PM. Thanks.

Re: Christmas Party Humor

I work for the fed gov and our office had 12 people and 7 retired since 12/31/04. Since we have so many new people (who can't be left on floor or phones by themselves since they still have lots of questions and need help), we combined our Thanksgiving and Christmas luncheon and had one luncheon where we ordered from a restaurant menu and they delivered. Some of us made desserts. Anyway, my Thanksgiving/Christmas lunch was a Italian Sausage Hoagie that I paid for myself. I worked 12/23/05 and it was a 9 hour day for me and I did not get to leave even 1 minute early. How is that for your Federal taxes at work!!!
