Will you do it, or will it have a financial impact on you?

Can't make my mind up which means I'll probably carry on until the answer is more obvious. But I'm going to leave where I have worked for the last 17 years and take a couple of months off. Where I work now isn't a good place to grow old in terms of workload.

If wages were still at 2008 levels I'd be more likely carry on. But increasingly I feel like I work too hard for too little. I suppose that's true of most of us and I accept many people have worse pay and conditions than me. But I have a choice and that's how I feel.

Privatisation is coming unless we get a change in Government and that rules me out, so perhaps I should carry on while I can for a few more years. And I do value public service, but privatisation removes that motivation.

I feel burned out. Does everyone get to feel like that in their fifties?

I can scarcely remember Albie Morkel. Feels like he was out the SA side 10 years ago. Sort of a new Lance Klusener/Justin Kemp.

not me, although I do get more tired, more often. I don't have to do a high stress job, in a high stress environment, under high stress conditions, though

consider how you feel and remember that we are all living longer and so have to work longer, then reflect what a pile of sh1t politicians spout and how often they spout it

Then further reflect that the Chinese, who live longer than we do on average, tackle this longevity problem by retiring people earlier rather than later

That would be nice.

Sadly the state pension has been moved out of reach, beyond the age when most people will be looking to retire.

In some jobs it would be good to retire older workers to free up employment for younger people.
