Hi all . Saw the retirement thread. Seems like a great place for Ignoresville. Perhaps a thread about how some were motivated to retire. Anyway a different type of thread and maybe it goes no where. But I had a neighbor recently who passed away. Guy worked for a major car manufactorer. Guy was a devoted camper , boater and family man. He always had huge family barbecues around the pool on major summer holidays. Seemed like a good guy, one who lived 4 houses down from me for 15 years yet we had never found the time to do more than wave. This guy was driving home from the plant the other day and had a massive heartattack , crashing in the concrete wall on the way home. 53 years old and close to retirement. My worst nightmare. I remember a story about a region manager we had. One who always worked with an excess of P & vinegar. We thought the guy would probably work forever. Might have until he was flying somewhere one day and God decided to call up one of his priests. The priest happened to be sitting on the plane next to our region manager when god made his call. End result Region manager retires 3 months later or so the story goes.
