Hi Pete,

Today is/was your LAST day of working for that crazy boss! You will NEVER have to deal with him, or put up with his crap again! If you read this after you get home from work, guess what? You are DONE!!!! I just wanted to send you lots of hugs and a BIG congratulations! You deserve to go out & celebrate tonight! Maybe go & visit your wife! I'm sure that just getting rid of the stress of working for that nasty guy will take your pain down a notch! Here's to your new life & all the possibilities, Pete!! You did it!! (((((((((Pete)))))))))).

many hugs,

Pete, I guess today you went to work with a "happy heart"(a saying between my son and me) knowing it would be your last day. I am really excited for you!! I wish you the best. You enjoy your freedom being away from your WB!!!

I do hope your pain level is low today. Have a great weekend!

Congrats Pete! Happy Retirement! I am so glad that you are out of there, with all of the crazy demands and the lack of care for you, I am really glad that you are done there now. '
Here's to a new, relaxed way of life, without all of that constant pressure.

I've seen enough surgeons over the last few years.

Pete, you did your best to change that boss, now it is someone elses job. On to the next mission. I know you are planning on enjo place but you will also miss some of those that you work with. I know you will be enjoying some time off after today but remember all things in moderation. We don't want to hear that you are overdoing it. I know that today will be bitter sweet as you are getting rid of the boss from a far far away place but also will be saying goodbye to some friends. I am sure we will be talking soon. Blessings!

Hi Pete:

I just want to say again how happy I am for you and how proud I am of you. I know leaving Wackoboss was probably the easiest thing you've done in a long time, but leaving the job itself without having another job to move on to must be hard and scarey. But the good definitely outways the bad in this decision!

Enjoy your time off with your wife!

I know I don't post often but I have followed this story.  I am so glad you are done!  This is so great.  I hope retirement is everything you want.  You deserve to relax and enjoy life.  I hope retirement finds you feeling better.
