We can only speak for ourselves, we really do not know anyone else’s standing on their physical, mental nor economic status.

At the end as I keep saying everyone must look at their own situation and choose what’s best for them and not what we say on this forum.

I don't think very many workers bodies gave out on the nose at 62. Probably within the 10 years before that and they hung on until the first possible exit which is 62 unless they went SSDI route. Then again there are perfectly healthy 62 year olds that just said enough is enough with working and retired.

Everyone's situation is different. I do know this, when a person retires, they need something to fill the void. I have been off 3 weeks with a medical issue and kind of going bonkers in the dead of winter. Perhaps I will need to take up knitting or quilting during retirement. Counting cars going by has gotten really boring.

Neither do I. Even my non educated cousin own a shop. She made other people work for her. Single mom with 5 kids, her husband died when she was 25, never remarried, kids gone to Harvard. But you hear people here on CD come up with unbelievable scenarios.

And sadly many people do have “unbelievable scenarios” that thankfully most of us do not have to face. As I said we don’t know what is going on in anyone’s lives or how they are able to handle them.

At times I broke the rules to be more efficient. And it paid off. But then you get the reputation of not being a team player and all that nonsense. You did not follow the rules! Often they want you to be a zombie and do whatever management says no matter how stupid. It gets annoying.
