You, just like the rest of us, are just a number. We are all replacable. You can make this out like it's a chess game all you want but if they are pushing you on something they will have everything they need to back it up. Since you are being vague about what is going on I am just going to take a wild guess and say they are pushing you on some productivity metric. Good luck being calculating on that. They have all the data and numbers they need to prove their case if push comes to shove. Whatever it is just push on umtil they offer you a package or push you out the door. Claim uneployment then retire like you keep metnioning.
