No A tongue in cheek reference that obviously missed to a post of a couple of weeks ago where a poster claimed he fired all lower level employees before they left to preclude them commiting acts he did not approve of.

he was just a jerk if that is in fact what happened and I didn't see the post. Good luck and enjoy your retirement, I do mine I have been retired since 98 and wish I could have earlier. I have had a few jobs since then and enjoyed them better since they were what I wanted to do, now I am enjoying time for me

I retired late last year. I left earlier than planned partially because I was not happy with my boss at all. Although the temptation may be there to play games, it's never a good idea to "burn your bridges." I took the high road and did my job right up until the last day and then quietly left. I've seen people not do that and I've seen it come back to haunt them. If you know you never want another job again and you're going to be completely retired you may be fine, but lots of people like to retire and then do other things on occasion and those burned bridges can come back to bite you.

I spent the last two months before retirement closing out actions I'd started, transferring actions to my replacement(s), organizing and transferring computer and paper files, and in general cleaning up after myself. I was there to assist and consult with my replacement(s), but would not assume the action myself, so they could become comfortable without me, as I would not be anywhere in the neighborhood or would not have the security clearance to assist after retirement.

I was consulted only twice after retirement, requiring my institutional memory, then they were good to go. I miss working with them, and doing that work, but less and less each year. I left knowing what I did was in good hands.

It's good to be retired.

I retired from the USN in 1977 after 32 years. I then worked at a civilian job for 4 years and then retired completely. One benefit of working after retirement is that you always know in the back of your head that you can leave at any time and still survive. The job I had involved local city and county government as well as state and federal. What a mess. I have enjoyed my retirement and hope that you do well in yours..

I too, am retiring as of May 31st after teaching for 34 years. I'm only getting credit for 32 of them (2 of which I bought) b/c I wasn't vested in FL for my first 3 years of teaching. I'm not burning any bridges, that's for sure. I may want to sub for additional income.
