Friday Wisdom on Saturday – Retirement

You’re getting Friday humor on Saturday because — I lost track of the days and just confirmed that yesterday was Friday.

If it wasn’t for my weekly pillbox organizer, I wouldn’t know what day of the week it is.

I’ve started to refer to Friday evening dinner as, “Quarter to Saturday.”

Retirement is that part of life where time is no longer money.

I just read that another oldest man in the world just died. This is starting to look suspicious.

Why do us older folks not mind being called “Seniors?” Because the title comes with a 10% discount.

The problems with retirement is that you don’t get days off anymore.

I thought I’d miss going to work. Turns out I only miss my paycheck.

You know you’ve finally gotten old when friends call at 9:00 pm and ask, “Did I wake you?”

In retirement, wearing pants is optional.

Retirement – when being unemployed is something to brag about.

Retirement isn’t the end of your life, but it can be the end of your bank account.

When do get retirees to have a long lunch? Everyday …

    You, too? Bless that weekly pillbox. It’s usually the first clue that I’ve messed up my days. (Or that I forgot to fill it in the first place.) Then I have to rely on my computer or phone to tell me for sure what day it is.

  8. You had me checking my settings, Andrew! I thought I goofed something up because I didn’t see a post. (you were missed!) πŸ™‚ I am not retired but self-employed and working from home. I try to go to Facebook and do a morning greeting post and mention the day. (i.e., “Happy Friday, everyone! . . . Blah, blah, blah . . . ) If I am wrong, I am told pretty quickly. LOL We all have our tricks, I suppose. πŸ™‚ Have a good weekend.

    I was retired for 2 months and 8 of the longest days of my life. When my replacement found another job “the boss” called and asked if I would come in for a few months until they could find someone else. When we met to negotiate the rates and terms she asked, “How long will you be willing to do this?”
    I replied, “Until I die.”
    She laughed and said, “That can be arranged.”

    “Why do us older folks not mind being called β€œSeniors?””
    Because we are trained from a young age to respect that term. When you’re a freshman you look up to the seniors. When at work, you look up to the senior employees. When you reach your own senior status, it’s a status, not a knock or a dig about age. And the 10% helps !
