I have just shy of 40 years air traffic control, so money should be great. Got my estimate yesterday, everything looks good so far.
The call was hilarious, my wife was in the middle of cooking dinner, dealing with the dogs, and just all around a little frazzled. Caller ID showed the call was from a cell phone so she expected another scam call and was very short with the caller. She asked who was calling and what do they wanted. Felicia said she needed to talk to me and could not explain it to her due to privacy. I got the phone and found out it was my OPM rep. I explained that we have been getting calls every night around dinner, political, IRS calling about suing us for taxes we owe (scam calls almost every day) explaining my wife's frustration. Felicia was great and we had a good laugh. I am very impressed with what is happening so far.
Any idea how long it is taking to get the retirement checks all straight? Also when does the annual leave payout usually come.
I will really miss working. I have been blessed with a career that has been very rewarding and challenging. Haven't slept for over 3 days worrying about what is going to happen when I go. There are no qualified people here to pick up my duties and the damage is going to be felt by this place because they would not prepare for my departure. I know it's not my fault, just don't want to see people get hurt.
