    People tell you to get a a REAL job? What's up are out of their minds. I've never really been one for working for anyone else.

    What do you think?

    Tell them it's not your problem they have to do a 9-5 that they probably don't like while you sit on your a$$ and make cash... Also, you could say "why do I need a 9-5 when I make money online"?

    ... unless of course your not making $.

    I suppose there really isn't anything you can say other than "I'm working on it, this is just a side thing" in order to get them to leave you alone.

    Also depends on who's telling you to get a job. If you don't value your relationship with these people, you can easily just tell them to F off. If it's your family and you're living under their roof, you kinda gotta do what they say. Just do whatever pleases them, while still putting a lot of effort into IM, and when you get your check show it to them so they know you're serious business and not just dicking around.

    When people ask me what I do, it's hard to explain it. So I show them my wallet

    Then they don't ask anymore stupid questions

    Self-Hemployment is a most wonderful thing in these hard times... I just increased my monthly income on one Merchant to an additional $200 month... When others are losing their jobs, I am giving myself a raise.

    That's what I say.

    Actually no body asks me this - they all envy me that I get to work from home, and holiday when I want...!

    If someone tells you get a "real job", just give them time to grow up.

    I've got a real job and sure I could probably make more at home, but the contacts, what you pick up in industry knowledge - and really cool corporate nights out make it worth the while.:p

    i would say, "define a REAL job". most of them stumble and say something to the affect of, "being outside your house is a real job". umm, not so much. idiots.
