Hang in there man. BS is why I retired early and things where tight for a while. I could not stand the crap any longer and the time in to retire. Now everything is paid off, my wife retired and we are doing okay. I did work part time for 8 years and it was off and on, more on. I did shift work 23 years, rotating weekly through most of it. There are times I would work a month straight with no time off, 12 hour shifts much of the time. I was in a lower management position and lazy upper management was pushing their job down on us. They had got in to upper management kissing peoples ass and expected me to do the same. I don't play that came. I got called into the office one day and was told what I would do and how I would do it. I told them will see about that. I hadn't had a day off in weeks and as soon as I got a day off. I went and put in for retirement, my wife and I had discussed it already. It got so bad there that I went to bed pissed off and got up pissed off. My last day there was a 11pm to 7am, My crew and I went to a café and bar after work and I had steak and eggs and washed it down with Jack Daniels. I have never regretted retiring from that place. A ton of bricks dropped of off my shoulders that morning. I got home parked my scooter in the front yard. Went in the house tore the foil paper of the bed room windows. I had the room blacked out to sleep in the day on night shift. Laid across the bed slept a few hours got up showered hopped on my scooter and went bar hopping. I was so relieved it was all behind me, I was happy again.At my job, we have a minimum retirement age of 57. I will have nearly 40 years of government service in. I am starting to consider retirement now though. I turn 47 next month; but with my conditions it looks very appealing. I love the work I do, but the BS is getting very bad and there are days that the pain is so bad, it makes it difficult to want to get out of bed for a poor management staff. The only options I have is to suck it up and stick it out or hit my TSP, pay off my car and house, and then go on disability. I do not know how I would deal with that!
