This was the topic of conversation in our office the other day — yes, we have in depth water cooler discussions about retirement policy.  Heck, we have in depth water cooler discussions about payroll sometimes.  We’re a fun group!

Chaos, was our consensus.  That, and a return to 1920’s style “poor houses”.  Lots more 80-year-old parents living with their 60-year-old children.
