Bury Me at the Office
Last Saturday I ran
into a friend at a tailgate party before the Carolina/Boston College football
He was talking about
how he had retired after 30 years of working in the U.S. and France with a
large chemical company, consulted for about a year and then went back to work
running a manufacturing plant in Michigan.
I asked him why he went
back to work.
“Because it’s fun!” He
said. “I enjoy working. I like the people I work with. I don’t see a reason to
stop right now.”
There’s an old saying, “At
the end of life no one puts, ‘I wish I’d spent another day at the office’ on
Well, for some people,
the ones who enjoy what they do, that saying doesn’t work.
