You are very loyal. Weren't you with your previous employer for 45? Wow, I've been at my current job for 24 and thought I was doing good.

That’s an accomplishment. I have almost 19 and hope to make it 30+, but seems like more layoffs and down sizing every year could make that tough

Well congratulations on an awesome accomplishment! 42 years is a long time to be at anything, much less doin' it with the same ones for that long... I was at my last company 29 years, 5 months and 4 days... even tho I did leave early on that last day... Been self employeed now for a little over 12 years...

You sir have earned that gold watch... hope they give you one hidden in a big ol' sack full of huner't dollar bills!!
