Well said! I would travel. Hell I'd NEVER be home! LOL

A lot of you guys must not be married. If you were wealthy enough to stay home 24/7, so would your SO, and it'd probably drive you crazy. I know some guys who went back to work after retiring young just to get away from the riff-raff at home.

now see that i don't understand. why would you stay married to someone you don't want to be around? if that person bothers you that much, get a divorce and enjoy the single life.

Unfortunately this happens. You get married and some have kids. When you retire you're always together and it can be a difficult adjustment. My wife and I don't have kids and when we are off for a week we make sure there's time for us to be apart and do our own thing. It really is important.

When you have a job, you look forward to your time off. If you're in leisure mode 24/7 that can get just as old as a daily work grind. I'll take both (work and play) - not just one. You don't have to travel on your vacation - you can veg out at home. It's the very definition of a vacation

Sad, but you are probably right. That doesn't go for everyone, though.

I don't mind working. I get bored out of my mind if I sit around the house for too many days on end, work helps to break that up. No one is ever gonna pay the bills for you, so you've got no choice but to get up and work if you like it or not.

I've had jobs that I enjoyed going to because of who I worked with at the time. My previous job was great because I enjoyed the job, got promoted and worked with a bunch of people who I was friends with. Management was cool and we'd all pretty much hang out and mess around while the store was slow, it was like being paid to come and hang with friends. Sadly it is a seasonal position that comes around once each year, so I do another job in the meantime.

My current job is easy for the most part. I'm alone for the majority of my day and do everything at my own pace, management leaves me alone unless they need me for something else. It's the perfect position for me because I'm anti-social as hell and always know what is expected of me.

if i didn't have to work, i definitely wouldn't be bored. and i definitely wouldn't just sit at home.

i have my shop i can go do stuff in
i'd work on the yard (i actually like doing yard work)
hang out with family
watch tv (i can always find something to watch)

i've been unemployed, before, for quite a while. you find ways to take up your time so you're not bored.

I generally enjoy what I do...until I get weird phone calls from someone threatening to harm me. Some nutjob thinks I'm holding his wallet, which he claims to have lost in my building two weeks ago. He actually came into my building and spoke with the guy who was sitting in for me for lunch. That guy, a porter, told him he didn't have any info and gave him my work number. Sure enough he calls me and asks me where his wallet is. I tell him I don't have it and then he screams, in a steadily rising voice, that he's on a train heading back to bash my face in lol. He never showed up but I don't think this is over yet. He lives one State over so if he ever turns up it probably won't be any time soon. Other than that, my job is cool.

Fortunately, I don't have to work. Aside from the few hours a day I spend on the husband's work, I have a lot to keep me busy throughout the day. With the weather starting to get a bit nicer, I'm ready to tackle the outside.

If the husband wasn't working as well, I could see us doing a lot more together which would be great. Plus, if the money was there, he and his brother would head to Montana for a good couple of weeks for hunting.

He would get bored anyway. When he comes home for 3-4 days, he's still puttering around the house and outside doing stuff.

I don't like working at all, but it's a necessity; I need to to put food in my belly and fund my hobbies somehow. I've been unemployed for six months now (how time flies!), and even though I hated my last employer, I actually miss the job I had. That's not to say I've been bored out of my mind during this unemployment stretch, but I know I can't live off my savings forever. I'm just thankfull my parents are understanding and not the "GTFO my house!" kind of parents.

Thus the applications and resumes continue to go out in hopes someone will interview me so I can once again "work." Even if it's a retail job, that's fine with me. I just want something to hold me over until I'm done with school....which is about 2yrs away. I just find it difficult explaining my termination to prospective employers.

I don't enjoy working for a living, but trying to get through life without a job or any future prospects is horrifying.

I like working. I get a decent salary to run multi-million dollar machines. Who wouldn't enjoy that?
But if I didn't have to work, I wouldn't.

I laugh when I see couples who've won the lottery and they say they're not giving up their job. I'm like "Yeaahhh, suurrre!".

There's another way of looking at this. If you have a job that you kind of enjoy, or not necessarily hate, and your direct supervisors aren't douchebags, it's entirely possible to want to keep working even after a windfall just to stay active. Some folks may even have a tough time discontinuing their everyday routine from one day to the next and may actually want to keep up the daily grind. Other people simply don't see themselves staying home after working most of their lives. One of my bosses is approaching 90, he's already wealthy yet he keeps on working. I suspect he may actually be happier coming to work than staying home

The word a lot of people seem to be missing is “fulfilling.” Outside of running a videography business in what most would consider a part time capacity, I spent 6 months staying at home with my infant daughter. I really enjoyed it, raising her and not sitting in an office (like my usual day jobs). I watched all the movies I could stand. I was very fulfilled.

Then by near sheer luck I was offered a job running the av/media department of a large local multi-campus church. Because I was fulfilled in what I was doing I almost didn’t take it. But I did and it turns out to be the best job I’ve ever had. I’m respected for my knowledge and skills, well compensated, have very flexible hours, am largely my own boss... and while it isn’t my absolute dream job it is in my career path (for the first time). I am fulfilled.

Would I leave it for a better opportunity in my career path? Sure. Would I leave it to stay home? No. That’s what enjoying your work looks like

I recently got laid off from the job I had for 21+ years. Seeing as I got a severance package so far I'd say I like being out of work quite a bit. But that money isn't going to last very long so inevitably I'll have to find a new job soon. Odds are that I'll enjoy my next job less then my last.

My job makes me beyond miserable, but it does pay decently. Now I’ve had it for 12 years, and have accumulated so much seniority that I’m scared to leave, and essentially feel like I’m a prisoner there.
