Tic Toc – An Observation

Posted on April 7, 2010 | By Christian | 2 Comments

This is more of an observation… I had an interesting conversation over the weekend with my step father.  It was his birthday and he was saying he has another 3yrs to go before he can retire.  Of course, I am much further away, but it sparked my curiosity and wondered  how old I would have to be.  The answer is 67.  That is 27 years from now.  27 years is longer than the amount of time from  when I began “officially” working at 16 and today!  I don’t know what to say other than… shit.

    BTW: You kinda look like you are only 27 years from retirement. Maybe even just 7!

    Godbout – we are aligned, here. I was just thinking the same the other day. I’ve been working since 14, which means, by retirement, I’ll have worked 53 years. 53 years of contibuting to Social Security, and it might not exist when I’m 67. Is that even allowed?
