Here is a scenario of a by a man who looked forward to retirement.
I thought it would be fun because I wouldn’t have the hammer hitting the time clock and thinking about what if something happens and you’ll get blamed for it. Over the years I have worked on the evening shift and that made quite a difference in our family. I thought it would be nice to be home in the evening. When I did retire, I had been warned. “ Don’t hit the rocking chair.” Well you can’t work all you life. I started work early. I thought e could do what we wanted. Unfortunately things don’t always work out the way you want them to.
Dad had a stroke, so we didn’t do too much. My friends also started demanding that I cart them around. They knew that I was available.
We talked about me working two or three days a week. We could use the extra money. We couldn’t afford a lot of entertainment. We became very unhappy with our life style. We didn’t have the money to do what we wanted to do. So, I was more or less disillusioned about that, not heart broken, it just put a damper on things. So I started working again. And Mrs. preferred. She could get her housework done more easily when I wasn’t around the house all the time.”
As I finished this post I heard my wife upstairs vacuuming. I think I’ll go up and see it there is any way I can help her. What do you think about the situation described above?
