Re: SteveR's Big Day

I suspect that the last day will be tomorrow (Friday) which will be the end of the work-week.

SteveR may or may not take the time to post here for a few days depending on what they have scheduled for him on his last day. Therefore the conclusion and post-FIRE analysis may be delayed somewhat.

These cliffhangers really lock you in don't they ?

Maybe we should all take a shot at predicting what happens on his last day.

I think Steve will call in sick and not show up tomorrow.

Re: SteveR's Big Day

Maybe SteveR will have a watershed moment and decide that since everyone has been so nice to him at work lately that he will not retire after all ! How could he leave "The Family" after all that love

What do you think the chances of that are ?

I think the chances of calling in sick are much better. Hey - that's actually a good idea really.

Re: SteveR's Big Day

My vote is he will appear and eat the "free lunch" paid for by him over the years. Most folks who had the work ethic to get to ER do not want to burn the bridges... A little singe is ok though!

I retired 6 weeks ago but was asked to come back for one more board meeting this morning. Bummer, messed up my regular Friday tee time.

Congrats Steve!

Maybe leonidas changed his screen name and is posting as someone else to avoid prosecution?

Re: SteveR's Big Day

WoW....what an outpouring of positive vibes...I really appreciate it.

My boss was here all day yesterday and kept me here until after 6PM last night.

He is gone today and my "exit" interview is scheduled in a couple of hours. I am erasing the final group of files from the PC and deleting emails. The boxes are loaded on the cart and are ready to move to the car.

As Audrey1 noted: I have changed my tag line and also my avatar. The little guy is now sporting a smile, has a new shirt (ER) and has had the corporate screw removed. He is a happy camper now.

More to follow...........

I'm sure the following line of dialogue appeared at least once on "Wayne's World":
