26 More Years?

Can it be? Will I still be working 26 years from now?

I just got off the phone with a 66 year old woman who said she was in the process of changing jobs and she really didn't have time to see me. Sixty six years old. And still working. Is this what I have to look forward to?

I'm trying to do my job, which means I have to cold call prospects and try to convince them to meet with me. Once I convince them to meet with me, I'm supposed to present a compelling case for financial support of this fine institution.

Even if I had been able to get an appointment with her, this woman is sixty-six years old and still working. Like she's going to have some disposable income to throw my way.

It's just too damn depressing.
