Even though there are many here who can't stand what happened in my life, tomorrow is my last day at my job.

I've worked hard, raised my family right and now it's time for me to pass the torch to those I've trained to take my place.

I'm one of the hated "Public Employees" who chose a path over thirty years ago and now it's over and done with.

I have my flame proof undies on so have at it.

I used to take payments for the IRS, so whatever your job was can’t be that bad.

Let’s see. 33 years, you must be about 55. You have to be a government worker. I have an uncle who retired at 55 under civil service. 30 years later he is still collecting. He says he earned it. We are still paying for him. You should live so long.

There’s no shame in being a public employee—someone has to do that work. As long as you were honest and were a good steward of our tax dollars, I have no complaints. Could you imagine how much better our dollars would be spent if more conservatives went into public service. Congrats on your retirement! I hope you get to do some things you haven’t had a chance to do yet!

I am really torn between knowing the truly evil we ALL know that ALL public employees including my brother, mother (retired) and many friends and fellow church members are. And someone who likes open face turkey and gravy sandwiches. He can’t be all bad.

I am also kinda retiring tomorrow. After I was told that I was to be laid off I had the option of a early retirement that I choose. I still have at least 10 years to pay off my house so I am looking for work. Where is your job opening?

Good luck.

Just before you walk out the door, stop by the office of your boss and say, “I was afraid until now to tell you this, but we run the biggest heroin dealership on the west coast from here.”

You sound like a government hack punk.

Can I be blunt?

You're the next shoe to drop...You'll be strafed by those coddling you at tax payer expense. Ya see, the middle class private sector has already been gang raped by you people in government..And they are broke....You're next.

Bet the rent.

Eventually, your fat government paid monthly check, will be no where to be seen.

I did. Some are parasites. Some are diligent. The diligent ones maintain function and continuity. Small government is a very good thing; no government is lawlessness and chaos.

Haven’t seen you in a while. Glad to see you back.

I also didn’t state that I was a STATE employee...(I’m NOT)

I’ve paid 1/2 my retirement and all my taxes.

I’ve also not sold back any vacation or sick leave, all that goes to pay for my medical ins. My wife has to pay for her own with her job also.

Peter Rabbit said, “If you can’t say something good don’t say nothin’ at all.”

We’ll keep working to provide your security and hedge against inflation. Most of us will just work until we die taking care of your retirement and benefits. Many of that number will be earning less working than you do not working.

Have a nice time.

I retired 9 years ago, and have enjoyed it greatly. I’m a female, and raised two sons by myself. I worked 25 years in uniform for the State of New York Department of Correctional Services. It provided me with a better salary and benefits than I had previously earned as an office worker. I hope you have a long and happy retirement.

I hope you enjoy your retirement.

I’m happy if anyone gets to enjoy it. I fully expect to have to work until I drop in the harness, that is if I am lucky enough to actually have work going forward.

Many conservatives don’t harbor angst against public employees simply because they ARE public employees, they are angry because they feel that there are a lot more of them than are necessary, IMO.

That said...congratulations. Enjoy it.
