You know, I just went over 19 years at my job a couple of weeks ago and I gotta tell you, I can't believe I've lasted that long at a job I really dislike.
Granted, my workplace and working conditions have greatly improved over the years but still, 19 years? Oh well, only another 4 years and I have the option to retire with half my pension (thanks to my ex) and move on to something else, although I doubt that's gonna happen.
Maybe I can move out of Kalifornia to some poverty stricken area where I can live on that and whatever minimum wage job I can find. I don't need much, just a roof over my head, food and beer in my belly and the occasional coyote to entertain. CGD can pretty much fend for himself as long as he's got something slower than himself to kill, so that's not a big worry.
It still pisses me off though - work my ass off all my life only to have my ex take half my retirement after her laying on her ass half our marriage, refusing to work. Her big excuse was if she worked we'd have to pay in to the IRS at tax time - no shit, she was willing to give up a monthly income because she was afraid we'd pay in instead of getting our usual small refund. But it didn't stop her from insisting on our monthly trips to the fucking Bay Area or twice yearly trips to Reno so she'd be entertained.
And I'm sure she'll read this, but she can bite me - the $100,000 it cost me to get rid of her ass was worth every penny.
Yeah, I'm fucking tired and cranky tonight. Even CGD is keeping his distance from me - he's laying at the door snarling at the assholes across the street. He's starting to get on my nerves with that and I'd kick his ass if I thought I could get away with it. With my luck though, he'd bite the fuck out of me and I'd lose time at work.
Enough sniveling. I'm going to bed.

I can sympathize with ya about a sorry ass ex. I had one for almost 18 years, wouldn't fucking work, just wanted to lay around watch TV and smoke cigarettes. Undermined my authority with our kids.

My buddy caught that cunt cheating on me and I divorced her quick! All she got was my van.....I kept my 401k & profit sharing. She's pissed now that she didn't ask for half.

Now the van's running like shit and her Sweetboy won't leave his wife. She's just a weekend fuck-toy for him. She's living in a HUD apartment on foodstamps making minimum wage.

Dumb whore deserves all the hard luck she's got coming to her now!!!!

I still got a lil something for sweetboy as soon as I get a chance!!!

I totally feel your pain.....My ex tagged me for about 40k before I was finally rid of her ass.

You know why it's so expensive to divorce? Because it's worth it!

HA. Yeah I thought about my job, been there 25 years, it's got easier, it's been fairly good for our lives and I'll have 30 years in before I can even think of retiring. I often thought, Do I want the WTD retirement plan? (Work til death) NO, I want a cabin in Wy-Da-montana-ho where I can hunt, fish and frolic in the woods when I want. I want to enjoy my remaining years without having to learn spanish or listen to the lambamba wagons and gun shots in my hood.

As far as the wife... cheaper to keep her man, but a cabin off the grid and a shovel is cheaper than that... just sayin.

You know Kenny, life is a journey. I sure made a bunch of mistakes myself. I wish I could change a whole shitload of stuff but I can't.

Having just retired myself, due to not great health, I can sure give you a whack full of cost saving tips that I've learned.

Everyone goes through the contemplating time in their life where they think "I'm not happy doing this shit". Live with it or change it! No one, but you can do it. I don't mean to be harsh. Just going through the brain change myself.

Nevada. That's where I'm headed when I quit working in a few years. I'll look you up.

And a hello to CGD!
