I am officially RETIRED, Yee ha!

Post  Doug Rahn on January 8th 2015, 4:32 pm

41 years, 11 months, and 3 days, but who's counting Laughing Laughing Laughing Strange feeling knowing that I won't have to get up at 3:30 in the morning anymore Twisted Evil It took me almost 4 days to go around and say bye to just about everyone I know. Almost 9000 people working in Savannah and I think I shook hands and hugged about 1000 of them.

Funny you should mentioned that. When I went to HR for my exit interview the HR Rep. said that they were looking at putting together a group of retirees to come in as consultants on probably a quarterly basis to help resolve issues that may come up in production. She put my name on the call list when they work out the details. I said fine as long as the money is good Wink .




Back in Dec. just the before the Christmas Holidays my Dept. totally caught me off guard with a retirement luncheon. I thought I was going to a second meeting about a serious issue some guys on the Final Line caused which ended up being a skin change and they wanted my input on how to do it. Well, when I walked into our Conference Rm with my Boss, the whole Dept. was there, room was decorated and food on the table  Shocked  . Our MBU Executive Assistant decorated the room with a racing theme  Cool









My Manager made a nice long speech, and figured that in my almost 42 years I had worked 80,000 plus hours and approximately another 20,000 hours of overtime.




I was presented with several nice gifts, two of them being a dept group photo mounted that everyone signed and a really nice Gulfstream watch.

It is nice to see you made it and they recognize it. So many companies layoff long term employees to save money so I am happy for you.
