Mail Call

Here’s a piece of mail that showed up from AARP offering me a membership renewal.  Interesting, because I’m not a member —and since it’s an organization for people 50 and over I’m not even eligible.  Maybe there’s some sort of junior membership one can get.

But that’s besides the point. What really bugs me about this is the word “retired.” The way things are going with my 401K, I’ll be lucky to retire any time in the next 25 years.

This reminded me of the last time I was in Florida. There seemed to be two classes of older people, those who could afford to retire and those who couldn’t. Those who couldn’t worked serving those who could. And that’s what the future is going to look like.
