    Every time I try to explain to someone what I work for a living, they are confused if not negatively judgmental.

    I've been dead for three decades, but my tracker died, no ones posting... had to make sure there was a new cat GIF on reddit to check my pulse.

    I have found, if you don't want to say "I get paid to take surveys", one of the easiest things to is pick one of the specific tasks you do the most of and just say that. So say you do GEOs, "I mostly get paid to scan satellite photos for variable data." Sounds way more normal, and slightly made up, which is what most people expect when you ask about jobs.

    Me personally, since I mostly do VARPI, it's "I get paid to internet stalk short term rental hosts to make sure they are paying their STR taxes."

    Instead of the getting the scoff at doing surveys for money, I get the "Wow that sounds kinda creepy and kina cool, I didn't know they paid people for that."

    I just tell people I'm an IT contractor *shrugs*, which is KINDA BS but it's way easier than every single time someone asks saying, "I work on a platform run by Amazon. Technically I don't work for them, I work for many different contractors doing all sorts of work like data entry, research studies...I run scripts to streamline the work and curate jobs from all of the different contractors, I..........."

    Makes it sound way cooler than it is too :emoji_rolling_eyes:

    There's always the "I do consulting work for a branch of Amazon." Completely true, but not as snazzy.

    When I'm feeling really lazy I really just tell people I work for Amazon which I know is completely untrue but most of the time explaining MTurk to people proves to be a waste of time :emoji_joy:

    In the rural area here, it's just "I work for Amazon online" and that shuts them up. If not, I explain how I just did work for Harvard.

    There's always the super lazy answer I give people. "Google Amazon MTurk. I do that."
