I like to write posts based on my current experiences in life and this one happens to be a very unusual topic I rarely discuss here.(Haha) The topic today is retirement and we will dive in to share a bit about the sad state of retirement and what I mean by this.
The other day I had to take a half day off from work to go to a doctors appointment. I was done a bit early so I decided to go to the mall, primarily Marshall’s within the mall, to get a new pair of all-purpose athletic shorts for the summer. As I am walking through the hallway inside the local outlet mall, I see a row of chairs along the wall, each one filled with random people. Each and every person was just staring aimlessly at other people walking or either looking at a Cell Phone. The reason this struck me as being the sad state of retirement, almost 90% of the people looked depressed or just passing the time.
