they aren't retiring, either.

how old is Trump? Kerry?

I know, it's impolite to ask.

But people aren't retiring.

It was known for quite a while that retirement is mostly what seems to kill guys.

They live their lives often grumbling about their work.

Say they are looking forward to playing more golf when they retire...

But often they play just the right amount of golf when they are working their 3 jobs (gee, times are tough in New Zealand) and their main sense of meaning and purpose and value comes from their job.

Pomping about in their suit, feeling important.

Surrounded by brown-nosers and sychophants.

Even men in harder working and undervalued jobs. Police or whatever. Their job can become a huge part of who they are. Identity.

I guess we do hear of people transitioning well -- but it's hard. I guess if you have a wife then it really really tests the relationship.

But it's increasingly common for people to not let their jobs go *when they have a choice*.
