An interesting phone call


My old office in my last week of work in January 2007

On Monday, one of the guys in the group I’m working with came into my office and said, with a puzzled look on his face, “You’ve got a call on my phone.”

When I picked up the phone, the fellow calling said who he was and that we had talked a couple of years ago and that I had been thinking about retiring at the time.

I told him that I had already retired and that I had just come back to work as a contract instructor for six months.  When I said that he sounded a little disappointed when he said, “Oh, okay.”

You see, the guy who had called me was an employment recruiter who had called my old phone number in my old office to see if I was available or would be in the very near future.

He had no idea that I retired 2 1/2 years ago.  It was just coincidence that I was back to work on contract when he called.
