    Name one positive thing.....

    Working gives you other than money? I'll go first. For me it would be the structure that working lends to my life. You? Rob

    The relationships with my students. Many of my favorite people are in my classes.

    A reprieve when things are tense at home.

    Ultimately, freedom and a pension--though I know that's a vanishing concept.

    I think teaching my class helps to keep my old brain sharp.

    I worked in a brewery for a while and there were some free beer privileges.

    Actually, work was mentally challenging and was a lesson in working with others, including both interesting and difficult personalities. It was a personal growth opportunity. There were travel adventures to interesting places paid for by employers. It wasn't all good and retirement has it's own benefits. I think of it as another adventure.
