isn't so bad, once you get used to it.
seems non relevant to me.
That's easy for You to say!
... Oh sorry, thought you said irreverence
Don’t start feeling sorry for yourself.
total irrelevance is better that half irrelevance i guess
Its been so long since I've been totaled, its relevant only as fodder for honky tonk songs.
so I told her, "THAT'S the reason we can't have nice things!"
Relevance is a subjective thing. At least that's my take on it.
Retirement made the difference for me!
I strive to be irrelevant .
As long as it doesnt pertain to anything.
Getting used to irrelevance isn't the real problem.....
It's other people accepting my irrelevance that is.....
irrelvant irreverance, or irreverant irrevelance if you prefer
Thanks @Pthought. This thread hits too close to home. I’ve been putting off retirement. The cards are almost paid off. I’ll have more than I need to carry on. But I’ve been telling myself that I can’t take a real vacation until, until I don’t know when. Is that why? At work I’m the guy with all the answers. At home I don’t know anything. At work I build, evaluate, and repair laser imaging systems and teach others how to do that. At home I screw in light bulbs. I fear being forced into a life of irrelevance. And I fear that irrelevance is what triggers cognitive decline, at least in those of us where it hasn’t already started.
I've been irrelevant for going on ten years. Once in a great while I kind of wish I was doing something relevant, but then I make myself a sandwich, and watch an episode of Have Gun Will Travel, and I'm okay again.
What has any of this got to do with me?
I think I may have always been irrelevant except for being my son’s dad. He’s heading off to college next month (fingers crossed, current circumstances permitting, etc.) so I expect some shifts in self-perception as pertains to relevance in the coming days ahead.
On the other hand, some of that time being irrelevant was pretty fun, so maybe the transition won’t be that bad.
I'm totally indignorant at this point. Meaning I'd probably be more offended if I understood what you just said.
Yeah, but it doesn't really matter.
