What do you mean what you wore or did at the grocery store?

I do get asked all the time. Even when I went to my son's class last week the kids wanted to know what I did at work-lol!!

I really don't find it odd and I never thought it was rude because you could "figure out" how much someone would make. You can't really know just by telling someone what you do how much you make.
