I’ve been retired for slightly over a year, and although the year I missed might have seemed like a year of retirement (they’ve been working remotely since April), there are still benefits to being gone. I made a list before I retired of things I wasn’t going to miss. I wanted to wait until enough time had passed, so as not to offend people, but most of the things on the list aren’t personal—except the person who always left their used teabag in the sink strainer—that person can be as offended as they care to be.
This is the time of year that one of the things I really do not miss is taking place, the sale of stuff by coworker’s children. You know what I’m talking about, the sign-up sheet in the kitchen for candy/holiday popcorn/wrapping paper/candles/tea/etc. When our daughter was asked to sell this stuff, we just wrote a check and ignored the request. I wish these people would have just asked for $10 instead of expecting me to buy $20 worth of over-priced bland-brand candy.
