He chucked the 9 to 5 routine

Quit work-choose a better routine

A Dolly Parton impersonator was the perfect surprise at a young 50 year old surprise retirement party at the Huntington Hotel, San Francisco. What could be more fun than Dolly Parton changing the lyrics to "Jolene, Jolene" since his last name rhymed to this song and the woman who cheated on her man. Of course she added the song 9 to 5, changing the lyrics to "There's a better life in Colorado."

According to the event planner,  "Dolly was fine and great fun. Especially when she changed the lyrics to Jolene,  Jolene."
