I think I passed another milestone today, I got called "the worst employee ever". I am totally serious!

Cliffs: STFU Raazor.

The story: As some of you know, I am good friends with a guy that lives 3 houses up the street from me, and he owns the local bike shop, where I hang out and drink beer sometimes. Today, I tweaked my knee working on my rental property, called it a day, and headed over to my Bud's (Steve) shop for some alcohol treatment.

We're there having a beer, when a woman comes in wanting a tune-up for her bike, but she asks if she can watch Steve do the tune-up, and he agrees. Now there are three of us in the back, and Steve is working on her bike. Customers start coming into the shop, so Steve leaves me and the woman in the back to help the customers. So I am sitting there, drinking a beer, watching the movie "Zombieland" on the TV while Steve helps multiple customers, and the woman tells me that I am "the worst employee ever". I simply responded "Ma'am, I'm way worse than you think."

I've been thinking hard of retirement the last month. My wife and I have picked a state and area to retire to and set a Not Later Than date of next year. After all the BS at work this week I am ready to leave this month.

62. If the numbers work to cover healthcare, taxes, inflation, and most of all entertainment, then go for it. I loved my job until I didnít.

I couldn't even think about retirement until the kids were on their own, college paid for, and working good jobs. My younger got there in the summer of 2019, that's when the serious discussions about retirement started.

Like you, both through college, both married, both w/ houses and basically self sufficient. Bank always open for cars, furnaces and emergencies still.

Then I looked at net worth, age, achievement of goals and told company to piss off. They were nice and paid me full separation, bonusís etc for full value cash out.

Could of done unemployment but Iím not that kinda guy. 7 yrs now with a couple of consultant gigs early on. But they arenít worth it as I have to maintain a certain level of income to offset insurance taxes etc.

Living the dream on the original nest egg still

I retired over 10 years ago in my 50's. I enjoyed what i did and liked going to work. Best thing i ever did. I got the chance to get permanently banned from CFOT and bring enlightenment, comradely, and wisdom to the vette barn.

I actually really enjoyed my last Corporate gig, and they were very generous with the separation agreement as well. I have said for years, the only thing I'm unhappy with them about is that they didn't let me work there for another 7-10 years.

Question Mick.
Why did you use a realtor?
I have listed 6 properties on Zillow in the past 5 years and sold them all for the asking price or above, 2 within three weeks of listing.
It sounds like you have the skills and time on your hands, so why not save yourself the 6% ?

That is a fair amount of cash you're leaving on the table.
