On June 15, two weeks before my scheduled retirement date, I tripped and fell on a sidewalk as I was running to catch a bus. I sustained a broken humeral head and torn rotator cuff in my right shoulder, multiple abrasions on my arms and knees and a split lower lip. I was a mess! I was very frustrated with myself because I didn’t have to catch that particular bus. I could have waited for a later bus and still made it to work on time. Aarrgghh!! That was my last day of work.
I returned today just for my retirement party. I have the distinction of being the first person to retire from Unisys' Austin call center. The Company gave me a nice Danbury quartz clock, a paperweight and a portfolio.
