    Maybe it’s because I’m getting older and see this among my contemporaries, but I’ve noticed a lot of people lured out of retirement with the promise of much bigger buck$ than they were making when they did their “thing” as a regular job. Perhaps their experience and wisdom are actually worth more now … but it makes me wonder what’s going on in the daily trenches that suggests that those still actively working don’t seem to have that level of excellence to contribute.

    A lot of retired people seem to be going back to work these days because of the stupid economy.

    I retired from IT in 2004. That’s four or five generations of technology, so going back isn’t possible. Besides, my investments are doing better than any salary I ever had.

    Ask for twice the total money and half the hours. From 40 per week at $10 per hour, start off at 20 per week and $40 per hour.

    Was actually wondering about his old job the other day. (Yeah, I have a lot on my mind, keeping track of the post-retirement careers of cartoon characters. Shows I am beginning to bond with the strip…)

    Frank reminds me of my grandpa, who never gave up running his carnival. Some people retire some never stop going.

    I was working with Texaco Offshore. One of our foremen missed his old friends and had plenty of time on his hands. He had done all the fishing he could stand by himself. He had fixed everything his wife wanted fixed and completed every project he or she could imagine. He wanted companionship for fishing.

    A new contract was about to go in effect. Under the old contract after a certain number of years anyone could retire at full pay. Under the new one retirement was much less and harder. On the last day of the old contract, he convinced them to retire.We were REALLY hurting to replace them that next morning.

    In less than a month they were ALL bored to tears. Texaco hired them back as contract workers at twice their previous salaries. They were making three times what they HAD been making.

    And they all lived happily ever after.

    Six months prior to my retirement I put together a small how to manual of all the tribal knowledge I had about the facility I worked at, why certain things were designed the way they were and a bit of history about the facility. I had about month to train my replacement. He was pretty quick on the uptake but appreciated what I had put together. When I left he only called me a few times to ask about some items.
