Supposed to retire on Friday but I was not paid for holidays not taken in my final pay Cheque. Mentioned to the manager and he said I would get it next month----After I have left the company.
Decided to make it easy for him and told him I will take the 4 days I am owed as Annual leave---Today and the next 3 days.
Went home and got the bike in the van and did what I always said I was going to do and rode home for my last ever commute to or from work. Only 30 miles and it was taken at a very relaxed pace as that was exactly how I felt. No Thinking or worrying about the customers and no worrying about the Company that I have worked hard for- For the last 29 years.
I may have upset a few people at work by leaving them in the lurch- but I don't care. From now on it is going to be Numero Uno----Whenever the wife allows.
