Same here. June 1st was my official date, though HR crashed my retirement party two days earlier and told me not to come back because of "offensive statements" I had made. The company had just laid off another 60 employees with no warning (bringing the total to 2000 who had been canned) and I was overheard saying, "And they wonder why morale is so low."

Life since then has been wonderful! I made huge progress on the Honeydew List...or at least I was making progress before winter and our record snowfall. The only downside has been my poor wife, who sees how much my life has improved, is three years younger and still has a few working years ahead of her. Let's just say her tolerance for bad management decisions has taken a nose dive!
