Correct use of FIRE?
« on: January 07, 2019, 10:47:27 PM »
Don't wanna thread-jack, so for you grammar-geek Mustachians who care:

Can 'FIRE' be used in both transitive and intranstitive verb or even adjective? E.g.

we FIRE vs we FIRE ourselves vs we are FIRE vs we are FIRED or FIRE'd?

At risk of upsetting the Internet Retirement Grammar Police,  I would suggest to use the full words rather than the acronym to determine which is correct.  "We are financially independent" sounds correct to me. Then again, so does "we retired early". So I guess I'm of no help whatsoever.
