What did you communicate to your co-workers when you retired? This is what I sent out in 2013 when I retired. I got many good-feeling replies. "Today was my last day in the office in my 40 years at UPS. We had a nice lunch, talked about some good memories and had a lot of good laughs. It don't git much bettrn dat ... at my age anyway! I wanted to let you know I was gone in case you were expecting me to pay that money back, you missed your chance. I have had the pleasure to working with a lot of good people over my years at UPS and everyone getting this e-mail falls into that category. If you didn't get this e-mail, I probably just forgot you ... all UPSers tend to be good people, in fact, much better than my memory. The fact that I worked for UPS for almost 40 years is something I really feel lucky about. I can't believe no one ever caught up with me! I got to spend that time working with some very dedicated people making UPS a better company and taking care of our customers. Many people work for many different companies but still doing the same job. At UPS, I was able to work in many different areas getting a diverse view of the cogs and wheels that make a large corporation like UPS work. One thing for sure it was never boring and never easy and always a challenge, You can't ask for much more than that in a job. I always tried to make the job fun for myself and the people around me and because of that, I leave with many good memories and people I consider friends for life. For that, I am most grateful. I guess you may want to know what Iwill be doing in retirement from UPS? Not retiring is my plan. Photography is a side business of mine and I teach photography in the evenings at a local college. I will extend my class schedule and increase my photographer for hire upon retirement. I lead workshops around the local Atlanta area as well as the Tetons, Gulf Coast and the Appalachians. I teach High School students after school hours to support their Photography Clubs or in some, generate an interest in a lifelong hobby. I also am the president of the local photography club and the duties and responsibilities of that position will help fill my days. In case you win the lottery and need a traveling companion to document your travels ... contact me. Note: I will carry your bags. Take care my friends and enjoy a fulfilling life!"
