One of the senior managers where I worked at a University Students' Union before retirement always said "The most important members of staff here are the cleaners. Without them, we would be unable to function and would have to close the building." Wise words. The staff had a lot of respect for him, because he treated everyone with respect.
If anyone at a social gathering asked me what I do, I would answer that I'm retired. If they then went on to ask me what I used
to do before retiring, I think I'd say, well it's no longer relevant, is it? Because I'm not doing it now.
