Really hate this "if you work at a diner" line on SS [View all]

Sherrod Brown (on Morning Joe), hold your tongue. My employers have no intention of keeping me around until I'm 70, and I'd sooner slit my wrists than work for another 17 years.

And, anyways, many of these "desk jobs" involve a lot of travel. Last week, I was at a conference out West where I was on my feet for three days. This week, I'm in the South. Not to mention the mental stress of these head game service jobs with their 24/7 connectivity, corporate fun and games and capricious clients, who are getting dumped on by their own bosses and pass the cruelty and the personal stress on to you.

No, I don't want to do this forever, I wouldn't be allowed to anyway, and I think I have company.
