There is a guy I work with who is awesome. He is older but super cool, old school, doesn’t give a shit.
He is so knowledgeable, a huge asset and well respected.
However, for some dumb reason people keep asking him when he is retiring.
Why would you do this?
First of all, he rules, they should be begging him to stay.
Second, have you met the man, the more you ask, the less apt he will be to leave. He would stay out of spite and quit on the spot just as an extra special fuck you.
I understand that he is older, but why would you actively try and push out a person who is one of your stronger workers?
This is why Corporate is a joke.
