What is the best way to announce your retirement?

I suspect the best example is from my father-outlaw, who at about the age of 53 decided to retire – except that he didn’t tell anyone, least of all my mother-outlaw. After a few days at home, she asked him: ‘Are you ill? Why haven’t you been going to work?’ To which he replied, ‘Actually, I’ve retired’.

    If you don’t ask the right question then you won’t get the right answer.

    The correct question to ask is:

    “To whom should one announce one’s retirement?”

    The correct answer is:
    “It doesn’t really matter if your family knows. The main thing is not to tell your employers.”

    The fun is in seeing how long it takes them to work it out.
