Farewell Old Fart!

I had a Memoir Monday post ready for today.

Then I came into work and found out I was losing Old Guy.

Not “losing” like he is terminally ill.

Or even “losing” like that time at the mall when his Alzheimer’s kicked in.

Friday is Old Guy’s last day at the VA.

After 45 years of service to this great nation, both military and public service, the Old Guy is finally calling it a career.

I really expected him to work here until they planted him in the yard outback.

Guess I finally pushed him to the breaking point.

Either that, or the thought of sitting at home with his new girlfriend for the equivalent of half months pay seemed like too good a deal to pass up.

Regardless, I’m going to miss the Old Guy.

Now, I’ll have to find someone else at work to give shit too constantly.

Any ideas for a going away party/gift/blog idea????

Good for Old Guy. He deserves the break and thank him for me for his service. As for a going way gift (with girlfriend in mind) give him a 6-month supply of condoms. The come in three packs now. And a pack is easy to wrap.

Awe, sorry to hear a good chap is leaving the job! But, his service I'm sure he's due. :)

Let's see, my idea... Give him a blow up doll and a twelve pack of beer.... Old guys like threesomes too! :) lol

Well deserved retirement for many years of service!

Try to fit in one more interview with him.

That was rad.

Inflatable doll? Sorry. I can't think of anything more awesome than this.

I feel your pain. I lost my old guy over Christmas.

It's incredibly selfish of them to retire and enjoy their lives.

What about US? The people that are left behind with nobody to make fun of?

My old guy rang me the other day actually. Because he forgot something.

Old guys are senile. They forget things. He'll be calling you to remind him of stuff before you know it.

Awww isn't that sweet.
Huh, I just realized we really don't have an old guy at my work.

How dare he leave you?! So selfish.

As for the gift....I say get him a hooker. Wait...maybe that's what you're supposed to get the young guys who leave. I'm thinking viagra might be the correct gift for old dudes. Save the hooker for yourself.

i had no idea who old guy was, so i went and watched the video with him. i LOVE him. he sounds like a radio announcer dude.

"the more sex the better, that's what i say..."

"i'm the kinda guy that goes downtown; i don't use condoms"

this guy is way too awesome to retire.
