I guess I'm in the minority. I don't really think it's rude (imo). I mean the ones that ask me know that I've been in the school a long time, they know I have college age and college graduate kids. I do get wondering if "Do I look old enough that I'm ready for retirement?" But I don't think people mean it that way. I really don't think anyone is doing it to be mean or rude. (again imo)
A couple of years ago a teacher retired in the middle of the year and when I was talking to her I said "oh , I'm so jealous" She got so offended! Of course I didn't mean it in a bad way just like I don't think people are being mean when they ask me when I'm going to retire.
BTW: I always say I have a few more years to go.
