I think it was this thread that got that going: http://early-retirement.org/forums/i...p?topic=6744.0

I hope no one has any objection with me promoting myself to Senior too.

Why? I thought you could become one just by purchasing a barony. Gotta be a UK subject?

I just about qualify as a hall monitor (if I am lucky).

I dunno, but I wouldnt mind the 9000 character one thats making the forum almost unreadable to get shortened up a little bit.

I wear it with a badge of honor! I have no delusions of my significance at work, and that frees me to be happy.

Re: What is with all of the new titles?

Husband signed up on some list and wanted to see where the list got sold to , so he signed up as

Mr. Igsoy
Head Honcho
(address)

He has gotten a lot of junk mail with that title in the address and we get a chuckle out of it every time.
