Gosh but this is a REALLY long one !
Well, if retirement after 60 is cumpulsory, I'll have to be going now ...
Sounds like OCD, but also a guy with nothing else to do in his life, someone who would probably react really badly to retirement.
It sounds as though he really badly needs to feel important and useful, even if the things he does are neither.
I understand the problem of telling a boss they need help. I was once testifying as an expert in a major trial at the Supreme Court, before a judge and 2 assessors, when it became clear that one of the assessors was senile and gaga. but there was really nothing I could do about it, in such a situation.
Presumably you hav discussed this problem with others - could you folks come up with some things where his advice could be asked for, things which could keep him busy and feeling important, without actually interfering with anyone else's work ?
I wonder if he has a wife, and what she thinks - she's probably delighted and relieved when he goes to work !
