    They changed jobs and have an additional income from a pension.

    They are in paid employment.............not retired.
    Every American who retires from their job and gets a pension calls it retired, EVEN if they get another job.

    Of course they do.............so what about burglarize ?
    In your corner of America they use robbery......despite several other Americans debating the use of burglarize, and the difference between that and home invasion ?
    I thought I knew more than this until I opened my mouth

    We don't use that word much. It's Robbed. Where do they say Burglarize more than the word robbed? Home Invasion is when someone illegally enters your home, it doesn't necessarily mean that you were Robbed. Burglarized and Robbed are the same thing.

    The watch of your vision has become reasonable today.

    It’s normal. You must provoke. You must insult the belief of all monotheists. You must make fun of the belief of all monotheists.

    One place is your source for the whole nation? I didn't say that it was never used, but Robbed is used way more. Maybe when speaking proper English as in a News Article the former is used more.

    Not at all. You asked for an example of where it happens, I pointed you back to the opening post.

    It's not an important thing to argue about now is it? Let's get back to the topic on hand. When you retire, where would you like to go live?

    I would not like to "go live" anywhere.
    I have wandered about for nearly my whole life. Being on one place for the rest of it would seem silly.
    That's why we got the SunDancer.
    We have places to go and people to see.
