I hate those abbreviations you have to think about.Like it's not bad enough having to tell people you're retired and explain it to your parents when you're 35. Thats almost as much work as taking phone calls to rent out your rental property.

Guess you were never in the military, eh? One of the first things I learned in Navy bootcamp was that NAVY stood for Never Again Volunteer Yourself. Acronyms only went downhill from there. Try being an ET in the CAL Field and then switching to the VLF field. UYK-20's were fun to work on. I'm now an ETC in the NR IRR.

You FIRE'd at age 35? Who cares about explaining it to anyone. Let them wonder how you did it. Feel free to fill us in though. FIRE tips are always welcome.
