So the maintenance man and I were talking a couple of days ago at work just about stupid stuff. He and I have been around for several years and I know him pretty well. He’s a good guy and will be retiring soon. I hate it because it means that we will end up with someone that just doesn’t know nearly enough about that stuff. They unfortunately don’t pay enough to get a top-notch maintenance man. With our guy’s case he makes a bit more because he’s been with us so long, and he has a nice bit of change tucked aside in stocks so that he can retire.
Anyway, he was trying to decide what to do with the van. He has to replace some of his storage cabinets and was looking at Jobox storage drawers for it. I don’t really know what the difference is between those and other’s so I just stand and nod and agree with him every once in a while. That’s when I found out he was retiring. I hate to see him go but he’s worked pretty darned hard and wants to spend some time with his grandchildren.
I still have a bit of time (like a couple of decades) before I retire but I darn sure and starting to look forward to it.
