Overview

"Did you hear? The company is planning to downsize another ten percent!"
"They're going to drop health benefits from the retirement plan!"
"Our department is being moved to another state!"
We've all heard similar, disconcerting rumors.
And then an early retirement offer lands on your desk and you have but two weeks to decide whether to leave. What then?
With over thirty years working for the same company, Jerry was facing yet another winter of icy, frigid commutes to his office in the Big Apple. Suddenly, with a small window of opportunity, he was offered a sweetened opportunity to retire.
And so it was, the day before Thanksgiving, Jerry bade his colleagues a final good-bye.
But what comes next? What will he do? Will he find the passion he tucked away in a desk drawer when he first started? Will he pursue another white collar and tie career? Will he resign himself to a life of leisure? But most importantly, regardless of what he chooses - will there be donuts?
You will find yourself laughing out loud as Jerry searches, stumbles, and starts again in his search for a new career - one without ties.

Meet the Author

Since the age of three, Jerry Della Rocca had worn a tie from 8-5, Monday through Friday. With little warning, the company where he worked for over thirty years offered him "a package too good to be true" (his employer's words) and he accepted early-retirement.
He now lives and writes on Long Island, NY with the love of his life, Elise. He's never written for Atlantic Monthly, Esquire, or Vanity Fair. He has never won any major literary awards, though his sixth-grade essay entitled "My Best Sundae Ever" did win him a prize in Dairy Queen's Summer of '59 campaign - he's still waiting to hear from the Pulitzer Committee.
A life-long story teller blessed with many a misadventure, he's never lacked for an anecdote about time spent in the wrong life lane. Now, as he ventures into an unplanned and unanticipated life of pre-mature retirement, he continues to share tales of his adventures at finding a new passion to fill forty hours a week.
