A friend of mine, recently died from a unknown cause.

We played basketball together, and he was healthy, and excercised regularly.
He was just about to retire, and he bought some property in Oregon for he and his family.


This angers me.
It is sad for his loss, but this questions the process of life, we are told to follow.
Spend 20-30 years of work (or more), then you will have enough pention and savings to enjoy life later.
This did NOT happen for him.
Many agonize the stress and hardships we edure, to have and hold a job.
And many "expect" a happy life, when our end of the deal is completed.


That is why, I'm so upset about this.
My friend was "ripped off" by what was told and promised from life!
He worked hard for 30+ years and just when the fruits of his labor came in sight....
"Sorry, your not going to experience the happiness promised to you".


Don't get "ripped off"!
Enjoy life NOW with no regrets.

You will spend more time at work than you will with your wife. Some on here may prefer that but its  ...

You are lucky to find something you like to do.
It would be a miracle for everyone to have work they enjoy.
When I go out, I see so many people doing the same mundane things "all day everyday".
There must be a better way.

Seems like this thread was deleted from an "Unknown" cause.
CD had no idea why or how.

Obviously the original poster has not learnt anything from the feedback offered him the first time. ...

Are you saying most people are happy working?
I should be happy he died, because he was happy to die?
He was happy when he died, so his short life is nothing to be angry about?

Please clarify.
