The buyout package came out today, kids!!!
I can't wait to get home and sign my name on the dotted line(s). Our head union dude here told me it's the same buyout they've been offering over the past few years, not the "enhanced" package we've all heard rumors about. This is a very good sign. If the enhanced offer came around this time I would have a snowball's chance in hell of being accepted because everyone within five years of retirement would take it and I'd be at the bottom of the barrel. Not good.
Oh god, this sooooooo needs to happen. Keep your fingers crossed for me!!! If I'm denied I have a decent shot at an appeal, so I'm not giving up hope. Please, please, PLEASE let me get it!!!
