I mentioned to a TV station engineer that I’m retiring. They offered me a job before I could even catch my breath. We were running 8:14 minute miles at the time and it was over 100F degrees (almost 40C), so “before I could even catch my breath” might have been one or two minutes….but still…….
Apparently that engineer told someone else who told someone else, and so on. I’ve received telephone calls from three other companies asking if I’d be interested in coming out of retirement to work for “them”.
Yet another engineer (he does consulting work for sewer system operators) has asked if I’d be interested in writing software for computers that control sewer systems.
My wife mentioned on her Facebook page that I’m retiring and somewhere she must also have mentioned my commercial driver license and school bus driver certificate because I’ve received telephone calls from two different friends of hers…both are school district student transportation directors and both are asking if I would like to drive a school bus.
My wife has already said how nice it will be for me to come down to her school and help mentor the high school kids in the robotics club.
I still have my government “portable hospital engineer” job and I am still a substitute school bus driver for the elementary school that our daughter attended.
Can I have a 5 minute break between retirement and un-retirement? Please?
