Retirement and Resignation
-The office is having a retirement party for Walter Wright next week.
-Has he worked here a long time?
-Well.I have been here for 15 years and he was here when I came.Walter will have plenty of money when he retires.Money will not be a problem.He has his pension from here at work,he and his wife will both have their social security retirement and he had a good savings program as well.
-I don't think Walter's wife ever worked outside the home.Does she still qualify for social security?
-Wives have the option of taking their own retirement from social security or ,as in the case of Walter's wife,they just get a certain percentage of their husband's retirement.
-I know of people who have retirement from several different sources.Paul Haley was in the Navy for 20 years and so qualified for a retirement income there.
-Does he have income from any other sources?
-He tought school long enough to qualify for a retirement there and then he was elected to public office and served for several years and is now getting a retirement income there as well.
-I'm afraid my retirement income is not going to be very good.I haven't planned very well for the future.But I guess it's never late.I had better do something about it.
-James,could you step into my office?I need to talk to you.
-Sure.I'll be there as soon as I finish this job.
-I don't mean in ten minutes or a half hour.I mean right now!
-OK,what's the problem?
-I'm afraid you're the problem,James.
