I tell them "I don't have a Job right now." The 'right now' implies I'm looking.

I say I'm a billionaire mogul part time porn star jk

No I work part time for grubhub so just get a side hustle then you can be a part time neet wich is ideal. Do you drive if so dd,ue. Are a good way to cover up your inferiority's. Or say your in between jobs. But I get it its acquired as fuck when normies ask that question.

If it’s someone I will barley speak to I’ll just LARP that I’m still going to university and/or working, if it’s a distant family member used the good old “I’m looking for a job at the moment” excuse.

I'm honest and i tell them that ain't doing shit right now. You can tell them a lie if you don't mind lying, since society tend to look down upon neets, idk how much do you care about what other people might say about you, but be careful with gossipers

@Haruhi Suzumiya

That's cool

Why is that? I always thought that since there's so many people it'd be easier to go on with life without being noticed by other people too much
i am extrovert >< i am drawn to crowds even when i wanna skip...
+ can't avoid ppl when i want, my safespace is my house.

Well in that case just tell them a lie saying that you make money off the internet doing photoshop, coding, transcribing or doing translations, whatever you like so they shut up

It depends. When it comes to meeting people day-to-day or people I'm not well-acquainted with I'll occasionally lie in order to protect my mental well-being (it has been mentioned here that wagies and normies tend to hate neets) as well as to save my time (by not having to answer their annoying questions and listening to their 'concerns' about how I am unemployed, etc.). In any other case (relatives, close acquaintances) I'll just tell the truth without a shame and maybe get into an argument... such a waste of time though. It's pointless to argue with most of the wagies as they have been indoctrinated by the society that you have to work and do all the other normie stuff.

well since i never go outside that is a rare occurrence. but if asked i would say "free lance artists" or something to that effect or i could just lie but whats the point when they would probably find out.

This conversation rarely comes up since I rarely leave my room but I tell them the truth. My extended family all know I'm a NEET, I've never had anyone say anything belittling. They're jealous or indifferent, usually jealous. My dad likes to tell the rest of my family that I'm making up for the neetbux my grandfather never managed to get, he died just before he could retire.

Now that I think about it, my younger sister did once say I was lazy and a leech when she was angry at me, she intended it to hurt me but I told her that she'd be relaxing at home all day if she could as well and she was easily defeated. It's all about ones state of mind, if you view waging as something loathable and NEETing as the highest state then who can really insult you? It's like mocking a prince for being born royalty :feelsmhm::feelsuhuh:
