"Are you working?"

It happens almost every day. Someone asks me if I work.  I've always hated the question, but it's a natural one in our society to help others learn more about us, hopefully. The reason I hate the question so much is because whatever I may be doing to make money at any given time isn't going to give the asker much info. on who i really am!  Another reason I hate the question is because, all I ever do is work regardless of whether or not I am making any money!

Just assume that I AM WORKING! If I respond, "well, I'm unemployed" I'd strongly prefer that you NOT unleash a barrage of advice!  Chances are you haven't thought of anything that I haven't already tried!  But thanks anyway!
