Some folks that are retired find it helpful to get ‘business’ cards printed up with their name, address, phone number, and email address. A retired friend recently gave me his.
I wasn’t even a big fan of handing out business cards when I was at MegaCorp, so I would have never thought having them when you are not working was a ‘thing’.
People say they are handy if you meet someone new, especially among folks that travel a lot or have multiple addresses (vacation home). Some folks said boaters also use them to share contact info with other boaters.
Many like to have them just so they can put funny job titles on them to represent their retired life, like “Happily Retired Good-Off”. Here are some of the funniest ones that people listed recently in an online forum:
“Professor, Leisure & Recreation Studies”
“Founder & Lounger, Leisure Institute”
“Tired & Retired”
“Bespoke Adventures Planner”
“Stand Up Philosopher”
“Investor Gambler (same thing)”
“Private Portfolio Manager”
“Explorer, Photographer, Woodworker, Mapmaker”
“Grand Potentate of Curmudgeonry & Trivial Pursuits”
While they are cute to read, I don’t have any real need or interest in spending any amount of money on cards. I appreciate the humor, but why bother?
What clever title would you give yourself in retirement?
