It has always puzzled me how people can look forward to retirement even while they are still young.
For, first, most of your life you will not be enjoying yourself and your work but dreaming about distant future.
Second, retirement almost by definition entails being useless to your fellow man. It means sitting in your house doing nothing, being bored, and pretty much waiting for death.
And third, you retire when you are old and maybe sick and senile or will become sick and senile in just a few years, and how can anyone desire that?
