I hate it. But then I was doing what an RSM was doing in a Regiment, as a Staffy, and after nearly 4 years was absolutely chinned strapped. Glad I got pushed out but now I’m rested and fit again I want to get back in
Who said anything about being non productive?I just wondered how others felt about doing nothing/ being non productive , If I dont work /get things done I feel guilty with myself for being being lazy but feel good if I get stuff done .
..."doing nothing/being non productive..." depends on ones perspective. For 50 years I was ..."doing...productive..." for the profit of whomsoever was fool enough to employ me. I earned my corn. Now I please me, correction SWMBO and myself, as and when it suits us. What's not to like? I'm a few years from hitting another 0, unlike Mein Führer who is only *21, although we've been married for * 50+ years. The stuff I do is what I want, not for the benefit of someone else's profit. Enjoy what time you have left, doing what you want as opposed to what must be done to pay the bills. Life work balance.I just wondered how others felt about doing nothing/ being non productive , If I dont work /get things done I feel guilty with myself for being being lazy but feel good if I get stuff done .
I'd been about five minutes at The Computer Centre, Worthy Down when a senior Senior rank came round, trawling for pallbearers for a recently retired RAPC WO2 who'd died, funeral at the garrison church.I went two years early , five years ago , never once have I wished to be back at the coalface
last month I lost a very close friend, he had stayed on as a civil servant, after his retirement date by 4 years and was just 8 months into his retirement when the big C got him this January
He was the second , first one was Bob , who I worked beside at Leuchars MTMS as a civvy, he'd been the flight sergeant there , and when finished with the RAF worked like myself a s a civ ftr, he'd a second family , a daughter and a son at uni and needed to stay working , at first he was a bit chuffed, no NI to pay , so it was like a pay rise , he finally retired at 68, dead 6 months later, those fags finally catching up with him,sad demise, hit his brain , went blind , really a bad way to go for such a tallented skilled man
It was because of Bob that I said **** it at 63 and sacked it
