I have co-workers who seemed determined to work forever. When I ask them about retirement they always say they see no need to quit working. Honestly, it’s difficult to determine whether they need the money or they just like going to work each and every day. One sixty year old woman I know says she wouldn’t know what to do with all the spare time in her day. Although that seems a bit insane to me, (I certainly hope to retire well before age sixty), I admire her for coming into work and plugging away in her cubicle.
Today I read about Sally Dickerson a cashier who has been working for Safeway for over fifty-two years. At age eighty-five she has absolutely no plans of quitting her day job. I’m always fascinated by those who never wish to stop working. You can read Sally’s story here.
