One disadvantage of being retired ...

One disadvantage of being retired is that you have to drink your coffee on your own time.

ahh, so true. I don't miss the coffee at work one bit.

I usually multi-task my tea at work. Rarely there is time to only drink tea. And many a time the tea gets cold. So would be nice if and when I retire one day to be able to drink tea/coffee in peace and in my own time.

The coffee I make at home tastes better than one I could get at work. Ends up being old and burnt and the water tastes funny there. It's amazing. The process of making coffee is so simple and the amount of coffee used and water used is so precise. Yet the variation on the flavour is ridiculous. In 30 odd years when I retire it'll be my own coffee in the morning with my cats (god I won't have Mynx that long! That's depressing!) and tea for the rest of the day. Pots of tea! Maybe an espresso or latte to mix things up.

More like a funny thing about being retired.I also read that after being retired people die early? Is that even true? Or just some internet hoax.

From what I remember from my sociology class some people do die earlier after retiring. Working all those years gave them a purpose and something to do, kept them busy. When they retire there isn't always something to fill that space. I was a little worried when someone I knew retired but they've done well to fill the time. Between special seasonal events, getting more involved with their church youth groups and travelling and playing games he's got very little idle time.
