    OK for those who don’t know, I’m a girl mechanic. To say It’s been an “interesting career” would be an understatement of EPIC proportions! I’ve worked on just about every car you can imagine.
    I’ve been “Mechanic to the stars” (I won’t drop names as it’s unprofessional), I’ve resurected cars that should have “stayed dead”, I’ve worked at many shops in my career & now I’m tired. Tired of dumb questions by management, tired of being “hit on” by customers (a couple have put their hands on my thighs during a road test), tired of snide remarks from co-workers.
    The shop I currently work in has been sold, & I have no desire to move into another shop, nor do I wish to get to know the new owner, so it’s time to take my final curtsey & retire.
    The first thing I’m gonna do is go to the nail salon & get a full set! I’ve ALWAYS had manicures in my profession, (I never hid my true identity) but they never last long.
    I’m gonna have lasting manicures!! I’m gonna have my big strong son (he’s ex-US Marine) help me move my tools into my garage where they will happily rust away from lack of use!
    I’m gonna get into my cute, girly car & drive off into the sunset & focus on my music!
    Wish me luck, Patty & Anya!

      Bobbi ,

      I’m so happy your getting to retire from wrenching.

      It will definitely be the auto maintenance worlds loss as I have talked to you enough to know you are an excellent mechanic and trouble shooter on these high tech new cars.

      Your shop doesn’t know how blessed they were to have you and to have the opportunity to possibly have you as a friend.

      I sure hope your retirement from auto maintenance is every thing you want it to be my friend.

      Huggs Patty

        Thanks Leah. I already dress 24/7/365, I just had to wear a uniform at work, which is just as well because I wouldn’t work in my “civies” anyway. πŸ™‚

      That sounds sooooooo awesome !Β  I really envy you that you’re hanging up one career and moving onto another one.

      I’m also staring down the path of retirement, and if it is my choice I’ll stick around until it happens.Β  Once I do decide to hang up my boots, I’m not revisting my current career, EVER.Β  Like you, I’ll pursue other interests.

      Bobbi, congratulations on pulling the eject handle. I’m so close in doing the same. Sounds surreal that I am begging for redundancy or I may just say as you have, enough is enough. BTW I also have a Mazda RF in the garage which I’d love to drive all dressed up, have to run that past my SO first though.

      Hi Bobbi, Congratulations on your decision. Β Retirement is the absolute Best!!!! Β I retired five years ago and I absolutely love it. Β I’m just busy enough to make life interesting. Β  And best of all, I get to change my femme outfits at least five or six times per day. Β You know, different outfits for different activities: indoor exercise, outdoor exercise, grocery shopping, going to the gun club, cooking, etc. Have a lovely rest of the weekend, All the Best, Hugs, Krista.

            Thanks Bobbisue. It’s been a long time coming! I’m gonna do a lot of dancing!
            time to put the nice satin sheets on the bed, as I won’t be bringing any dirt home ever again!
            Perhaps the best thing of all, is that I won’t have to take off my pretty clothes to put on some shitty uniform! This girl is over the moon! πŸ™‚

      Good for you, Bobbi.

      Every year now since I retired (laid-off, found odd jobs, finally gave in) it’s actually been better than the previous year. Just wish I were 20 years younger so I could enjoy it even more.Β  What really makes it nice is the kids are all adults now and mostly responsible for their own decisions (yeah they do call Mom and Dad on occasion), we have absolutely no debts, and we can make whatever choices we want and have the opportunity to really enjoy them.

      May your retirement bring as much happiness!

      Hugs

      Hi Bobbi.

      Congratulations on retirement! You’re going to love it. I’ve been retired for about six years and am so happy doing just what I want when I want. It takes a bit of getting used to all that free unscheduled time so just relax for while and let your daily routine form. Clocks don’t mean so much anymore to me.

          Bobbi, you’re slightly off the mark about one thing😋😋😋.Β  All of us have the same thing to answer to.

           

          It’s that small, still voice in our head that says “uh-uh-uh” or maybe, “go for it”.

           

          Me, I ignore that voice all the while wishing I could tape its mouth shut!!😀😀😀😀

          Hey that’s a nice car too !

          And …it doesn’t need a parking space like the caddy.

          I live in Europe , and you would probably not be able to find any parking space for it here.

          Love Sylvia
