    We always had an internal clock counting down our time working for this place. Today when you approach senior guys you can pretty much tell they are done with this place.

    Common conversation is how much time you have left until you can escape the sinking ship. One common thing that is spoken is the fact that when those who helped build and carry this place leave, the second bench prospects for the future is not to bright.

    So how long till you pull the plug? Or have you decided to, or already pulled it?

    I am opting for early retirement myself due to the cluster fudge that this company has turned into. Even if I stayed I do not gain much more toward my pension and honestly the way this place is going it may not even be around that long.

    Big R, many ask that at my terminal as well for the same reasons. I heard that today when it was said a guy on OJI is done. You heard a few say good now I move up one; not it's a shame that guy sacrificed his health for this place and was hurt due to something that occurred on the job.

    Mine is less than 15 days

    I am looking at it in a similar way,T. Am in CS pension with 30 years. I think even if I stayed another 2-3, my pension may not be any better then. Plus I commute 63 miles,one way. Ready to get something close to home...

    I know it's seasonal, but winter is just around the corner, Mud will be needing help with the sale of Campground Approved Firewood.
