With the way things are going in our economy not to mention our foreign policy blunders with Saudi now looking to sell oil in the Chinese Yuan. I figured I better get more cash flow coming in and figure out where to send that money as our dollar becomes weaker. Gold, Silver, Bitcoin? I've already got a job offer accepted and hope to start on Monday.
 
Been retired since April 2015. It was nice while it lasted.

    Good luck to you Kram! I wish you the best. Sorry to hear that so many friends have had to come out of retirement. I had my clock set for 9 years to go but for the past year I have put that off to never. :-(

    A lot of people work a job to retire and then they unretire and find a job that they like. I have seen people grow bored with being retired and want to return to do something.

    Im sorry to hear you have to unretired Kram36, but it is true what you said you need to keep that cash flow coming in the way things are going. I really hope you can work from home rather than being out there.

    Those who abuse power, are nothing but scumbags! The challenge of power is how to use it and not abuse it. The abuse of power that seems to create the most unhappiness is when a person uses personal power to get ahead without regards to the welfare of others, people are obsessed with it. You can take a nice person and turn them into a slob, into an insane being, craving power, destroying anything that stands in their way.

    Both my wife and I are retired and will stay that way and just adjust to economic changes.  We are too busy to be bored.

    I'll say this, it's to do with medical supply chain distribution. So I'm hoping my employment will not be terminated due to lack of demand in that area of our economy.
     
    I start on Monday.

    Appreciate it! Not a work from home job, I will have to go into the distribution center.

    Thankfully, I have a job I love doing (previous hobby from over 20 years ago that turned into a career,) and have zero plans right now to ever retire.

    It's been 2 weeks now, everything is working out great. I'm in the IT Department, I do stuff like make sure the scanners the employees use get downloaded and setup for the next day properly. Fix any issues they might have during the day with their scanners. Also do some Microsoft Excel and Access workups.
     
    The place is huge, very clean and lunch break is paid for.

    Awesome! That is great to hear.

    If you have any access or excel tips and tricks you pick up while there, I know how to type basic words and no commands/formulas, lol.

    It's a shift job Monday to Friday. I do 6am to 2pm, sometimes 4pm if it's busy.
     
    I live 5.6 miles away from the building, takes right around 8 min to get there.

    Paid lunch is normal in Europe. Glad to see it happening in the USA.

    Awesome to see that you found what you were looking for kram. Having a paid lunch is also a big plus, I was surprised when my new job informed me of this as well ( 1 year ago)
    Wish you the best

    kram, glad to hear the new gig is working out and is convenient logistically.  money is money!
     
    also just wanted to add that pensions are "guaranteed" until they aren't.  my first job's vested pension value went to zero.  anyone that went through 2000-2010 in the workforce probably knows this already but worth a post.  everyone should save their own money in their own custody if possible.  i had to learn the hard way.
     
    cheers all.
