Do you guys have any creative, fun, snarky ways to answer this?

I guess it's something that legitimately bugs me about society (or I'm just pessimistic and it's like a trigger since I still don't know what I'm doing with my life, but caring less and less about work and realizing it doesn't define me at all!). I was at a wedding Friday and this was like the cliche' go to conversation for a few people I met for the first time, and most people you bump into in life it seems. I'd say it's just as bad as talking about the weather or something.

Thoughts and counter attacks?

I usually go with sarcasm where I can. Or I make them feel bad about asking.

"Oh, you know... teacher that can't get a job... so retail worker."

"Iphone babysitter"

"I teach old people how to set up their voicemail."

"I am a warrior in the battle against the dreaded monster known as Apple... come to the dark side of Android... we have cookies and better cameras."

I was such an L.A. stereotype for a while there.

"I'm an out-of-work writer that occasionally gets work as a background person for webseries. I edit for my friend's blog and do a podcast, but that's just for 'exposure.'"


These days I'm a Direct Support Professional, but since most people wouldn't get what that means right off, my answer is:

"I work at an activities center for developmentally disabled adults."

This was how I worded it when I had to do jury duty and they ask you your occupation along with whether or not you have a significant other or kids and if you've served on a jury before.
