Retirement is an illusion. Not a reward but a mantrap. The bankrupt underside of success. A shortcut to death. Golf courses are too much like cemetries.
People in the company are almost never fired ... they are encouraged to retire early or are eased aside into hollow, insignificant positions with fake functions and no authority where they are sheepish and unhappy for as long as they remain.
When you retire ... you go from who's who to who's that, like stepping off the pier (or) achieving statutory senility.
