Wish me well if you would be so kind to do so.


Good luck!  Your life is about to change tremendously!

Oh no @september, I am not unsure.  I have done my online retirement application with CalPERS in May, done my homework with Social Security and Medi-Care.  Just don't want the last eight weeks at the office to be harder than the last 21½ years have been.  My office is a pressure cooker for sure and also very negative.  I need to go for my mental and physical health.


 

@Dell1, I TOTALLY get this. I retired at the end of January from very much a pressure cooker, stressful, everyone-hated-everyone job. My prediction is that after you tell them, you will feel like an anvil has been lifted off your back.

 

As for your remaining time - you will have given your notice; you are retiring. They can want all sorts of things from you, but that doesn't mean you need to feel you must do it. You can go in every single remaining day with a secret grin, thinking "In X number of days, I'm getting OUT of here! I don't NEED to stress and worry any more, I'm COUNTING DOWN!"

 

Don't worry too much and don't let them stress you out any more. You're going to be FREE!

@Moonchilde, I copied the payroll calendar from when I secretly made my decision in April.  I have it on my refrigerator.  When I come home each day from work, I highlight the day with a green marker.  On a Friday I highlight Friday, Saturday, and Sunday.  It is nice seeing more days highlighted to the end of July and less to highlight.  I don't think managment knows or even gets the stress put on the staff there and the discontent.  But I have fought the good fight, raised my kids as a single Mother while working there and am now 65 years old and need to go.

 

When staff says oh sorry Dell sorry this is late but I need this to go to court today and it is already 11 a.m.  No wonder my blood pressure is up at times and I can go to sleep at 8 p.m. on a work night due to sheer exhaustion.  Thanks for your reply.

Well, I wish you the best!!     How much notice are you giving?    A couple weeks?

"One of the most important skills in life is knowing when to leave the party,"  

 

Sounds to me that it's time to leave the party ....
