    last laugh

    most of you know what happened to me workwise a couple of weeks ago, so this may be funny in my own odd kind of way. today i was talking with the investment people to roll over the 401k into an ira, and they asked me what i wanted to do with my stock shares. i had forgotten that part of the retirement savings was invested in company stock (only 48 shares at this point), and any dividends were reinvested in more stock. to make a long story short, i've decided to leave the stock shares as is, and have the company send me a check every quarter. the amount would be around $60, but it's the principal, they may have eliminated my position, but in one form or another, they still have to pay me.

    Back when worked for Honeywell, they gave me one (1) share of stock. Every year I'd get a dividend check for like $1.39. Drove me NUTS. I put up with that for maybe ten years before they offered to buy that share back from me. Leaped at THAT chance!
