It's great being retired ANY time of the year. Hang in there guys and gals. I feel for ya. To be honest- peak for me was always dreaded, but I thought the month or two after were worse because management always laid off way too many bodies and you never knew from day to day what extra crap they would add to your route. Nothing worse that being lost half the day.Glad to hear you guys are making me some money. I'll smile a little wider when I stroll by the mall Santa this year. It's great being retired in December.
