    "So, when are you getting a real job?"

    1. "You're sooo lucky. You get to do whatever you want all day."

    2. "It must be amaaaazing being your own boss."

    Totally. It's less amazing being my own janitor, office manager, secretary, mailman, and sole colleague.

    4. "I wish I could work from my bed."

    5. "I'm so jealous that you get to work in your PJs."

    6. "What do you do with all your free time?"

    7. "So, when are you getting a real job?"

    8. "I wish I could work with my pets around."

    9. "It must get lonely, huh."

    10. "Hey, since you're free all day, could you do me a favor and [insert random errand from which you stand nothing to gain]."

    11. "You're probably so productive since you don't have any distractions."

    12. "Where do you have meetings? Your living room? Hahahahahahahaha!"

    13. "Do you ever miss being in a real office environment?"

    14. "When you say 'working from home' you really mean chilling, right?"

    15. "At least you don't have to deal with a commute."

    16. "You should be glad you don't have to deal with annoying co-workers all day."

    17. "So cool. Every day's like the weekend for you."

    18. "Do you have an awesome work station set up at home?"

    19. "Wait, so, do you like it?"
