One needs to look no further than user names in this forum. The one that will get my vote is "FIREd."

If you like subtlety, how about imoldernu, travelover, or NW-bound?

If you want to laugh at others who are still working, haha is appropriate.

If you like direct approach, happy2bretired is a classic. Corporateburout is not too far behind on being direct.

Have to think about it. 'Sundowner' comes to mind... unlike the swagman, the sundowner shows up at the evening meal, when all the work's been done lol

How about 'CEO of Sundowner Unlimited'?

Chief Overlord of the Death Star was what my buddy put on his business card title when the boss said to pick any title he wanted ( the company, while a mega corp, was not big on titles....Everyone had 8x7 cubes, parked in the same lot and ate the same overpriced Aramark food in the cafeteria.)

DW just advised the the term sundowner has an alternative meaning these days, referring to Alzheimer's patients whose symptoms get worse around sundown.

Drunken layabout...

I changed my "title" on linkedin to "wafer bitch". Not planning on looking for another j*b anyway.

Yep, that is the only meaning I knew. A local very nice-looking 55+ development has the unfortunate name "Sundown Ridge."

The original term is Australian - during the Depression migrant workers would travel from farm to farm. Farmers generally rewarded these swagmen with a meal or two and a place to sleep in return for some menial labor. Sundowner was a distasteful term for the swagman who arrived just before dinner (at sundown), when the days work was done. Due to the hard times, most farmers gave the sundowner a meal and a place to sleep anyway, plus a loathing glance as they left the next morning.

So I guess Sundowner Limited would be a poor choice of titles.
