That's how long I've been working in public service. I've had government jobs almost all my life. And tonight, when I get off work, I will have completed thirty years of work, which means I can formally retire...at the tender age of 48. It's great for my family, because thanks to the George Bush Equal Opportunity Poverty Program, I've only been able to find part-time jobs, with no health insurance, up until now. After tonight, I'll be able to continue working and begin collecting on my retirement...which means my income will immediately triple. It still isn't gonna be what it was when I had a good full-time job years ago, but it'll be tons better than the last few years, which have been hard. For once, I won't have to take a second part-time job just to barely pay my bills. I'm serious about this -- the last few weeks, I've been praying a lot for God to keep me healthy, because if I were to die just short of my retirement date, my wife (my beneficiary) would get nothing. And she's not working right now, because she's caring for her elderly mother with Alzheimer's. So if anything had happened to me, she would've been really screwed. So I'm trusting the good Lord will keep me around for a few more hours, to make sure my family's provided for. Well, I'll see you guys tomorrow. That is, unless He's got a really sick sense of humor.
