XKCD On Police Being Killed In The Line Of Duty

Caption: We can’t let this happen again. We need to build a secure TWO-day-before-retirement safe room.

Hearing of people dying so close to retirement, or before retirement in general always makes me sad.  If it wasn’t for the “two weeks notice” courtesy (sometimes law?) I always thought the best way to retire from any job would be, just to tell your boss you won’t be coming in the next day once you decide the current day is your last.
