I always thought you were supposed to grow wise with age and I looked forward to becoming some welcome sage, passing on wisdom to my juniors; not be met with ‘Out the way granddad. You’re well past it.’ But then, that’s what I might have thought when I was young. Come to think of it, I did, when it came to some of my old bosses, too stuck in their ways to move with the times. But today’s young career climbers can’t say as much to me. I’ve retired. Solved that problem.
Seems with this ageing business, you end up self-taught anyway. What I don’t know today, I might find out about tomorrow. And hopefully I’ve got a good few of those left, so I should get the hang of it eventually. Then I’ll be a proper old man. But, perhaps, still with a touch of the youngster deep inside.
