    Remember when our biggest worry for this year was gonna be to always write the date as "2020" as to thwart scammers?

    I do. Ride through the woods and pastures over to his house. Dad is 77, but still kicking pretty good! Sharp as a tack too.

    I can remember when the weekend rolled around. But many times, being on call, it really didn't matter.

    I too enjoyed the work I was doing, but got burnt out with the corporate mentality and politics. PC got so bad, the job was no longer enjoyable anymore.

    At least you don't need a TQ (yet) to make your car start.
    I'm 65 and was a pump jockey during High School. Best price at my stations 19.9 Cents.
    The lines were so long you would have thought it was a shortage. It was a gas price war. 2 or 3 stations on the same corner would do that back then.
    I remember telling my boss that when he raised his price for regular to .45 Cents that people would just quit buying the stuff. He laughed. Stopped by a few years later to visit and found out his own oil company had put him out of business. Turned out the corner was worth 100 times the gas station. And my former boss owned the corner.
    Mind ceases wandering time for a nap.

    Exactly why I retired. I enjoyed the work and my customers. The company and the job had become something I no longer liked.

    Luckily, the welding department at the college is often left out of the politics. Hard to get SJW's interested in doing real work.
