"what do you do for living?"
i'm a waiter, literally. all i do is wait for people and more often than not they give me their money.

Hey Shinobi-X,
Good to see you around!
I'm starting to do trading based around Sema's and came up on this old post of yours
http://kreslik.com/forums/viewtopic.php?p=20700#20700
(post from June 22, 2009)

Was curious if you'd talk about how you felt about Sema's after all this time.

Don't even use the dirty forex word.,
I was asked once and I used the word forex and the response I got was

ppl - "Hey you're a smart guy, why would you waste your time doing that.."
me - "huh?"
ppl - "I've seen late-night infomercials showing rednecks making $500/day, it sounds like a pyramid scam, get-rich quick scheme"
me - "actually, I buy and sell foreign money.
ppl - "oh that's different!" <-- uhh??

In reality, I usually start off by telling people that I am a physics teacher (which I am). I make more money in forex, my "real"-job gives me an social interaction, alibi and keeps the tax man away.
It is the only reason why I still have a real job, not out of necessity but more out of keeping in touch with mankind.

Why lie or boast?

Just tell the truth..

I am an oil man, that has a passion for trading during the day. I currently trade foreign currencies at night and during my free time.

Simple, to the point, and no BS..

I find that the only people that ask the question are the ones that aren't really interested and just want to bore you about what they do so I usually say, "Bank robber".

Of those that really know, question number one "Are you making money".
Couple of my pat answers:
"MYOFB"
"I don't posses a printing press"
or to one or two business owners I know that will ask specifically HOW MUCH do I make
"MYOFB"
"There are two people that know how much I make, me and the taxman. Only one of us has the correct figures"
or
"How much do YOU make???"

The last one REALLY shuts them up.
