Congratulations. I pulled the plug at Boeing nearly 15 years ago, just before I turned 57. I'd had more than enough of riding in the back of the bus for 27 hours from Seattle to places like Jeddah, Dubai, Abu Dhabi and then having to start work within a couple of hours of arrival.

At-work BP measured 210/150 on a machine in the cafeteria one Friday lunch-time between my trips and was 128/65 by Sunday afternoon. Work-place stress hypertension? Better believe it.

I decided I didn't want to shuffle off this mortal coil in a hotel room in the Middle East, and couldn't persuade my idiot management to find me a less stressful job. Exit, stage right!

I've since done 3 years as a transit bus driver for the local county agency and a bunch of volunteer work. Bottom line, IMHO,-if you can't get your employer to help you get over the heavy stress situation - bail out! There are other jobs that pay a bit less but are less stressful and more fun.

I'm sure I'm still around at 72 instead of pushing up daisies in some foreign field because I took that voluntary step into a less affluent lifestyle.
