It just happened. I was a bit absent minded and retired instead of save & quit. Luckily it was an old company that took some hits anyways, but it also happened to my friend just yesterday.
Would it be possible to move the retiring function to a different menu, maybe to the Obituary menu? I think it would be the right place as you might be a nice touch to remind the player of all the people who died when they decide to end their misery :).
