It depends on your relationship with the person, if it's a close friend they wouldn't ask you about work when they know you are not working but for any other person just say work is fine and move no long story because hopefully you will soon get another job.

it depends on the personality that asked, if it was someone that I think has the contacts to connect me, I would plainly tell them that I'm no longer working

if na our normal slay queens and kings, I'll say work is fine


although God can use anyone to connect you, what I said is based on human knowledge

Just tell them that work is fine.

There is no law that says you must be an employee before you can acknowledge that you currently working smiley

Say, work is fine. You are not lying, because you have it in spirit and it takes confession for it to manifest.

Do you say, work is fine or you just tell them plainly that you are no longer working?

I find the answers both awkward

God's gracious will do, with or without work, especially when responding to an acquaintance! Meanwhile, when you are an establishment, you can never be out of work, unless on volition - strive to become one.

Just say the truth. The person may be the one that will refer you to a new job.
Depends on the person. Can you tell another jobless person that?

Re: How Do You Respond To This Kind Of Question? by Adetayo1978(m): 9:33am On May 01
We often reply by saying "what is fine", But sincerely speaking, it's best to say the truth about the situation by saying " guy, I am not employed as I speak or chat with you OR I haven't gotten any work till now" Who knows who will be there to help with a job?

Re: How Do You Respond To This Kind Of Question? by SeriouslySense(m): 9:46am On May 01
Well for me, i will tell the person exactly what it is, it is not like the person will harm me with that information, if the person is jobless, he or she can go about gossiping, i don't really mind, no-one will kill me for saying, how it is.

So i will say, i am not working, finish. Although in my mind, i know i am moving on. cheesy cheesy cheesy.


But its all about your mind, if you know you cannot bear the shame, then you can just say, its fine, and there is no need for more questions or stories that will torture you. :

Aptly put....Discretion and wisdom since humans are the most difficult to communicate with holistically.
BTW @chillybrandy Hope your sales brand is eCommerce personified.
