"There are countless horrible things happening all over the world and horrible people prospering, but we must never allow them to disturb our equanimity or deflect us from our sacred duty to sabotage and annoy them whenever possible." -Auberon Waugh
It would be foolish in the extreme to trust that the Powers That Be won't change the rules in a heartbeat when their power and wealth are threatened by instability.Exactly why I took my SS as soon as I turned 62. Get it while you can, that's my motto.And to further stick it to the man, I now consider myself retired. You can take my retirement when you pry it from my cold, dead hands!
But there'll be lots of internships. I hear Lena Dunham is 'hiring'.
R-man: I'm with you. Every time I see one of those financial advice columns exhorting me to hold off until age 65 (or even 70), I can only laugh. I know too many people who have put off retirement from crappy jobs just to get that extra bit of chump change from SS, only to die within a year or two of closing the office door behind them for the last time.
