    Well, officially I retired from AT&T as a Field Engineer, but that was a down graded job that I hired into at age 56. Prior to that I worked as a Manufacturing Manager for companies including Xerox, Northern Telecom,, BASF, DataPoint, Takata, and Allegany International. Lots of manufacturing jobs that moved off-shore. :(

    The last 18 years I delivered heating oil and gasoline,my brother decided to stop selling at the end of February, now I work for myself.I am a handyman but specialize in drain cleaning.I spent most of my retirement on tools so that I never have to work for anyone else again.My last 2 bosses took advantage of me and I won't let that happen again!!
