Tier One

I sat today with two very senior teachers, one wearing a “Tier One” t-shirt.

They were discussing the best ways to retire.

“The thing to do,” said Tier One, “is take all your sick days until you have only one left.”

“Why do you do that?” asked the other teacher.

“You do that,” Tier One replied, “so you can drop dead on the last day. The payoff for death while working is much more than you get for retirement.”

Teacher two nodded solemnly.

I couldn’t believe what I was hearing. “But you’ll be dead!” I said.

“Yes,” said Tier One, “But your family will have very fond memories of you.”
