Rudest comment about working online
« on: September 16, 2016, 11:27:55 PM »
What is the rudest comment you've ever heard about the fact you work online?  I think two rudest thing I've heard was from someone a 'friend' and a family member.  The first asked me if that was code for unemployed.  My aunt asked me if that was just until I get a real job.  Both are over the age of fifty so to them, if it's not in building, it's not a real job.

I find that people who have never worked at home before, do not understand what it takes to be successful. To be honest, I even had someone once tell me that working in a fast food restauraunt as a shift leader at 17 was "not a real job." I wanted to be all indignant with a retort that I have my own spending money or something like that but I, instead, chose to be tactful. It is all about opinion. While you can sit them down and explain in detail what it is you do and the revenue you can create, that can be taxing.

Personally, I just keep chugging along. They see that I am never complaining about bills being paid nor do I have to ask for help because my job provides benefits, W2, hourly wages and I have "business hours" or a working schedule. They will eventually get the idea or not.

Take no offense because people will often have the wrong opinion until someone like us educates them.

I think that depends on the society you are living in. Where I live, whenever I mention that I make some loose change by working online, the immediate reaction is one of respect followed immediately by curiosity. Like "Wow! That's cool. So how do you do it?"

For those who are facing negative reactions, please keep in mind that even the most successful people in the world had been looked down upon. Until they succeeded. So just keep on going. You will make it one day. That's for sure. So long as you don't give up.

I don't have negative comments either, but for me it's surprising that most people aren't curious on how I do it because let's be honest, it's great to make money like this.

Most of the negative comments I have ever drawn from discussions with the uninitiated are not rude but out of ignorance. To some people, working online is synonymous with a scam. To others, its synonymous with working for pennies. Newbies online have this notion that its something to make money overnight without the requisite effort and research to work for honest sites. Others voice their resentment at not being able to venture there to be their own masters.

I'm a bit on the fence about this, because there are some people who do make it a business and work hard at it, because they can't get a real life job, or they are unable to leave the house due to circumstances.

I can see why people would think a fit and able person could be seen as lazy if they choose to work at home. I've seen many people who are, and so while it's not nice, the fact is it is true of many.

I don't discuss it with people as my main role is caring for my parents at present, so it's not a long term situation. Plus in the past I have had high profile jobs, so people know I am not lazy.

To add to this discussion, as part of my side gigs, I do write articles to try and quell any misconceptions there may be about working from home. Heck, I have even written a book about it. As many of you have said, it is more ignorance than it is rude. It just depends on how you take it. Some people believe that working online or working from home is not a real career. Alternatively, I have also heard that working in a McDonalds is not a real career either but people move up the ranks to management and end up making good money. I guess I am saying it is all in the approach. They are likely not being rude, people just tend to form invalid opinions on something they don't know.

Educate them! Make them and you better for it!

I have had my share of them. The most annoying I have had is from family, especially my father "It isn't like you are working anyways" is what he said before offering the garden job. Which hey in a way I guess I wasn't all that much? But I was trying. And I have had my boyfriend in the past casually look at me and say "I think its time you start looking for a real job and give this up." I guess if I had an actual online call center job or something nobody would say anything but because I choose to do it how I want to, it is looked down upon. I try not to talk about what I do online to people much anymore, I get tired of their negative attitudes.

Well, that just shows ignorance from him because no one is giving us nothing, we are working hard to make our money online.
