    Relevance is a subjective thing. At least that's my take on it.

    Getting used to irrelevance isn't the real problem.....
    It's other people accepting my irrelevance that is.....;)

    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.

    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.
