You can, and perhaps should, prepare for this possibility as it is a basic observable fact of existence. Comparing that to any aspect of an afterlife is ridiculous. This is just another example of your inability to think rationally regarding religious topics. You just can't seem to do it. Even the most basic principles of logic elude you.
OK got it, so you DO believe everyone gets fired and no one quits or retires.
Logic <> you.
