RETIREMENT

Post by bkuehn1952 » Sat Jan 14, 2017 8:03 am

I heard one of our members recently retired to full time golfer status (not me unfortunately). Maybe they should share the good news with the rest of this motley crue.

I think Brian is talking about YOU, Chris. You wanna share your details and plans for the Senior Tour?

That's impressive. I always thought of myself as a loyal employee but I am finishing up my career with the 4th employer (not counting my self-employed interlude). Decades ago I recall reading that people entering the working world could expect to have several careers and an average of 10 employers. That seemed outlandish at the time but closer to the truth today.

If I could offer you a salary for your work as a moderator, I would. :wah

I'm on my 4th and last (hopefully) employer.

There is a lot of talk about mellinials (technically I'm one) not being loyal. To be fair companies have done away with loyalty to the workers as well. So chicken/egg?

Anywho my current employer bucks that trend and I hope to be there until I retire and start my own part time job.

Thanks guys. Been a long haul. Not too mention a lot of luck. That chapter has ended but a lot left to do.

Play some golf. My daughter gets married in April. Clean up some loose ends and get ready to make the final move in a few months. Hell the door is still open for some part time work when the crews fire up this spring. We'll see how I feel.

Congrats CeeBee!

I'm on my 4th employer now, at least since i started my 'career' after college. Been at 3 'start-ups' and also did 7 years in the usual Corporate America type company; i'll take the start-ups in the tech industry any day of the week. Although, being 36 and JUST making the Gen X cut, i've seen first had the millennial stereotypes at play. Obviously not all of them, but enough to make it a trend.

I dislike generational stereotypes a great deal, especially being an HR guy. On the one hand, when you go to school to study HR, you become very sensitive to stereotypes. On the other hand, they actually have classes in HR program that teach generational stereotypes.

Of course, there is a thought that occurred to me the other day. Entering the workforce right now for the first time is the generation that I like to refer to as the "post-millenial" generation. These were the folks who were born after 9/11. The one defining part about their lives that makes them unique is that they have spent their whole lives working on mobile touch-screen devices. That means that they don't know how a fucking computer works, and that means we are all doomed. I'm not an IT guy, but my job spills over into IT from time to time. I had to troubleshoot a PC issue with a 20-year old a few weeks ago, and that was the worst troubleshooting experience I've ever had in my life.

lol...no. He's not my subordinate. He works in Fargo. I work in Phoenix.

You also may not have guessed, but I absolutely despise with an undying passion the concept of a touch-screen monitor on any kind of device. I've started to carry glass cleaner with me because I can't stand my own dirty, grimy fingerprints let alone someone else's.
