Because they couldn't all be ERs, could they?

There's a whole big, wonderful world outside...
Or they work the night shift or swing shift... that's usually my theory.

Re: Sharing Thoughts on FIRE

Unless you're one of those benevolent types, its probably best to just keep FIRE to yourself when it comes to workmates. Saying you're going to retire early, especially if early means within the near-term, wont do you any favors at work.

The goal at work is to make everyone think you're passionate about your job and that it is more important to you than anything else; whether that is true or not. That is;..... if your goal is to be as successful and as highly paid at work as possible.

When the day comes that you're actually going to retire; give them the standard notice and say bu-bye! Don't let the stunned faces bother you. You got yours and to you, that's what counts.

This is a dog-eat-dog world. The most successful realize this.
