Popular Post Dirtyhip Posted October 17, 2017 Popular Post Share #1 Posted October 17, 2017 The guy gave me some great advice a bunch of years back. When my husband was in school, I was hell bent to quit my job after he finished. I was miserable. My boss was a micro manager that enjoyed belittling people. Taking initiative was almost a bad thing with her. She loved to tell you why your idea would never work, because she had a better one. I was fully planning on leaving my job and being a housewife. Mojo advised against it. He said "Keep working, and you can get to mutual retirement faster." I shrugged off what he said at the time. Months turned into years. My husband graduated and got a great job. I plugged along, to save a little more. Then, a miracle happened. My boss was demoted. They basically just pushed her into a cushy easy job, but with no employees under her. I am sure she had the same pay, but she was essentially removed. My new boss is amazing. She listens, and has changed so many processes to be easier. Another gal retired. I pushed to get her position, but you work less hours. This change has made me so much happier. I don't have to work as many hours, during the year. This makes working longer much easier. Now, back to what Mojo said. "Mutual retirement will come quicker." We're less than ten years from mutual retirement. Thanks, Mojo. I don't think he came over during the last migration. That guy helped me in my path a bit. When I opted to stay working, I could hear his advice in my head. Work hard...then relax. 9 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
