“Yes, retirement sounds like a scam anyway.

Spending all the time waiting and hoping for the day I can stop working as a senior, but as a senior, our health begins to deteriorate rapidly and now all the money saved for travels and life experiences goes towards medical bills and being tested on by doctors.
