Whatever the reasons for "PageyCakey" setting up an account and then disappearing (turns out it's the name of a rapper - wonder how many oldsters like me would know that?) - it's still one of the more interesting threads I've seen here lately, and I doubt there's much useful information to be mined here (or that the account was created by a bot).

44 years - retired a month ago when we relocated. We'll see if I return to full or part-time work, but so far I don't miss it at all.

Do C-D Admins start threads in order to keep interest (and traffic) up? Nothing wrong with doing so, especially if folks find the threads interesting.

At my old job, if somebody asked me, "How long have you been working here?", my stock reply was "Ever since my Boss started keeping an eye on me".
Not sure who to credit for that one, it wasn't my own, but I still chuckle at the thought.

I started at age 16. When a government-mandated program disabled my youngest son at age 3, I left work at age 39 to explore options & resources only to find out I WAS the only option & resource, so I was forced into early retirement & am now effectively trafficked by our DHHS into uncompensated caregiving for the rest of my life.

So 23 years.

Full time work began at 19 - with military and all civil service I have 35 years of working - I started earning my own spending money at 11 with babysitting and then started working at restaurants at 14 as a dishwasher and then moved up to waitress - all thru high school. I plan on continue working until 62 - 7 more years - so just over 42 years when I retire.

Not counting teenage nor military years, I started working at age 22 and retired at age 62 so 40 years working.
