Of course on year 24.5 they shuffle you out the door and give you a nice Timex. They'll sell it as a "bridge" to retirement and give you a couple weeks/year of service. Ya I'm cynical.

Cool deal.

You should see the watch my mother got when my dad hit an anniversary with his company. he didn't want anything, so he picked something out of the ladies section.

I used to work at a manufacturing plant.. there were guys that had been there for 20+ years, and were making 3 bucks an hour more than me, after I'd been there for 6 months. Hell No.

I quit that shit as fast as I could

Not likely, this has been a company policy for over 60 years, not changing anytime soon.....
