Old Timer
« on: May 25, 2011, 05:53:15 PM »
At the end of a meeting at work this morning, a few employees are having a side discussion about how my company handled document retention when we had a different classification system.  One of them says "we need to ask someone who has been here a long time" and another turns to me and says "Henry, you're an old timer, do you remember how this used to be done?".

Old timer?  When did I become an old timer?  Oh well, at least I have information that was needed.  Since I am now officially old, does this mean I can start dozing off at my desk?  Maybe I can now get a cane and start yelling at kids to keep off of my lawn?

This is just lovely.  But I really don't have time to worry about it, because I am off to my next meeting.   ::)

Regards,

Henry

Henry-

You owe it to yourself to not just become a cranky old man. Instead,you should go straight for the title of Curmudgeon, and all the benefits that go in accordance with such a ditinghuished rank: The right to wear bermuda shorts with black socks and garters. The right to diplay your "turkey gizzards" in public while wearing aforemention shorts. The right to park by feel. There is so much more to being an old man than meets the eye. Enjoy your dotage

You are so right, Carl!  I must open my mind to the bigger picture -- the possibilities are endless.

Henry  I  agree with  Carl   embrace  it.... the "yougnuns "  are  jealous  ......they need you and  your vast  knowledge  to keep  from being completely lost  when they screw up  something... it  actually pisses them off to have to ask.....

Yeah, I remember be addressed as; "hey dude".  Now, it's "excuse me sir".   I guess as long as we're still be addressed, we're not dead.

Hardly.  It's more a matter of constantly keeping current, and constantly keeping on my toes.  Gotta know how to maneuver!

Oh my...   I'm not sure if I'd be a good one.  But I might try.

How old are you, Woodsy?   ;)
