Well said. When I retired, they replaced me with a contractor. They've been going through contractors and outsourcing companies about every 3 months. I can tell when they're switching by the phone call in late afternoon about "meeting for lunch and discussing my doing some part-time work". Lunch is usually good. It's nice to see my old boss and talk about everything other than work. But she knows that I'll say "No thanks". I'm retired, off the corporate hamster wheel and don't need or want to deal with all the corporate bullshit. Lord knows what kind of clustertruck I'd walk into if I ever took them up on the offers.
