If you’ve ever been forced to make small talk with a stranger, you know the topic of work will come up. When it does, there are only two options.
- The person doesn’t understand what you do
- The person doesn’t understand what you do, but wants you to do something similar for free.
Okay, that’s a bit of an exaggeration. If you’re at a professional conference, people tend to understand what you do, because they do something similar. Right now, Twitter is having fun with these conversations. They are so relatable.
“What do you do?”
“Oh, so, you work with computers?”
“My computer is broken, can you fix it?”
“I don’t work with hard…”
“I have a warranty but it’d be nice if you took a look”

Leave yours in the comments. I have conversations like this:
“I’m a writer.”
“Do you write novels?”
“No, I write about business and HR.”
“Can you get me a job?”
