"Meetings, Meetings and More Meetings"
My local school retirees association put on a pre-retirement workshop today for teachers thinking about retiring. There were just over 80 signed up, but due to there being no fees to attend and it being a beautiful day, we were about 16 people short. This is small sample of the crowd at the workshop. They are listening to a presentation regarding Social Security.
It's nice nowdays that I don't have so many meetings to attend. There was a time in my career, early-on, when I thought those who "lucky" enough to attend meetings had more seniority and clout than I. By the time my career closed in retirement, I had been to so many I was beginning to gag on them. Not literally, of course, but "gag" is the best word to use here....
