There was a period of time a few years after retiring that I became bored. With my wife's prodding, I applied for a menial, low paying, part time library job without medical benefits. A week after the interview, I was offered a marginally higher paid, part time library job.
Then I changed my mind and turned down the offer. My freedom had become too important to jump back into the regimented work world, where other people control my time, dictate what to wear, etc.
I will get a job if unforseen medical costs climb high enough so that it looks like we'll run short of money.
