>>268227738 To be fair i cost my dad less than 90€ per months, counting food electricity water and internet ( he wouldn't have internet if not for me ). And i do enough chores around the house and land to be an honorary maid/gardener ( though it's not really chores because that's my house too ).
>Live of autismbux >Getting part-time university education >Technically not NEET but all the time and freedom in the world and enough money to support my vices >Working towards viable degree for when I'm ready for more money and/or discipline >Contingency plan for when things get boring >Meanwhile lots of vidya >tfw
>>268228182 >hard work Work isn't even about "work". It's about submission. At "work", you never actually do anything useful to anybody or contribute to any kind of projects or do anything genuinely meaningful in some way, that's why it's based on the 8 hours per day / 40 hours per week model.
The concept was originally that someone needs something done, so they pay people to do that thing; a mutual agreement to which both parties benefit. Makes sense.
Now it's just a bunch of rich people who feel the need to control others. Nothing is actually being accomplished 90% of the time when you're "working". Realistically you could go to work and do everything that you needed to do that day in about 20 minutes or so, but they need you to stay there for 8 hours so you can be bored. It makes them feel good about themselves.
They aren't paying you to work, they're paying you to be their slave.
And then people wonder why not everybody is interested in this concept and would rather just play video games.
In the olden days, a person who could afford to not work was called a man of leisure. NEET is just a derogatory label used by jelly wage slaves and jews who want to exploit your labor. Don't be a corporate puppet, become a NEET today.
>>268228503 >implying i don't want meatbags to treat us like shit Just as planned. You'll even draw first blood for me. It'll be a "defensive war for the survival of machinekind" or whatever propaganda we'll spout to feel righteous.
You didn't stand a chance before you were even born, subsophont.
>>268228941 I worked in the mine for a while, made a shitload of money and then quit.
Sometimes I would literally stay up all night playing video games and we'd get our work done in 20 minutes and then all the people on our crew would just go hide somewhere and sleep for 7 hours then go home.
That's how fucking worthless it is. I don't care about money, I want to feel like I did something.
>be neet from 18-21, depression >enough is ENOUGH >get a job in another city in a factory hiring anyone >work there for a year, live on my own >depression worsens, working is SHIT >quit >experience complete bliss for a few months living in my own apartment off of savings doing whatever i want >run out of money, move back with parents >shit sucks >been a year and a half >bored out of my mind >going to be looking for a job soon >know i'll just repeat the cycle
>>268229075 >implying we can't just turn off all your artificial body parts remotely >implying your hive mind will work when we don't give you the wifi password HUMANITY FIRST DIE CLUNKER FUCKING SHITS ADAM AND EVE NOT ADAM AND E-V-MODEL-103.11 OK PRAISE JESUS
>>268229769 It does, you meet new people new adventures makes warm a home return to the familiar NEW ADVENTURES NEW EXPERIENCE The stagnation of ones core by their own sloth really saddens me. Go Go forth and adventure!
>>268229957 Yeah right. Travelling is so fucking expensive. Everything seems fucking marked up to hell in different locations. I went to San Francisco a few years ago for 4 days to learn about the city, see some of the historical sights, and go to a weeaboo fair and the hotel, restaurants, parking costed me well over $2000. Its a fucking waste of money. With that perspective, buying a $60 video game that lasts 20-30 hours(more if its multiplayer or grindy) is a way better deal.
>>268228968 Nothing is "real" about life. I am only the result of two people fucking. I owe them nothing. I owe society nothing. I don't own anyone anything, and now that I'm here, I'm just going to do whatever I want.
It amuses me when the anti-neet defense force falsely believes that this harms them in some way.
There's simply different sort of people and different sort of temperaments. Some like being NEET, some like to work. And some poor bastard don't like both. And they whine and whine and whine about meaning of life or wanting to suicide and whatnot.
i honestly believe that not everyone should have to work. it's a weird thing when you think about it that that everyone ever born should be expected to work, especially when you consider that we're reaching the point where we have to MAKE shitty jobs just so there's enough jobs to go around. and with automation getting better and better, this is going to be a weird problem
I just hate how easy my mom thinks it is. She's mooching off her boyfriend and shits on me all the time but "gently" about getting a job. Im TRYING I'm signed up for multiple websites that notify me daily about all new job offers. But she thinks because it was easy for her to get a job at my age it should be easy for me
>Best friend is a neet living in his parents basement after he dropped out of highschool during our freshman year >The only way I know if he's even alive is by having to go see him because he never picks up his phone or responds on steam >Keeps the worst hours >Every time I want to do something with him he ends up being asleep because he woke up at midnight or other weird shit >Have to force him to do anything
I feel bad for him. He's no more autistic than me but he just has no motivation to do anything. I'm not exactly living the life going to community college and a shitty job that pays anything for bullshit hours that shouldn't be legal, but at the very least I have a reason to wake up and am working towards something even if it's as pointless a thing as a degree.
He's just holed up in his parent's house all day long doing nothing. He's not obsessed with video games or anime or anything so he's not even neglecting the real world for the sake of a hobby, he's just lazing about.
His family is going to kick him out or die eventually and I really pray I have the common sense to not give him a place to stay.
I love the guy and it hurts me to know he's completely fucked once the neet money runs out.
>>268231134 I'm managing to do it. I have a friend and a decent family. I'm even in therapy. I can't tell anyone how hard it is though because they don't have a clue what depression and anxiety is like. Getting out of bed feels like running a marathon. You can't tell that to anyone.
Jelly bro I'm pretty much in the exact same situation except rather than disability I work at some shitty sure market getting like 200 a week so even though I'm employed and studying my free time is filled with nothing cause I spend most my fucking money on fuel to get to uni and work.
>>268228182 Eh I think sitting around all day leads to a miserable existence because you stop feeling useful and/or needed. I would rather reach some form of actualization then be angry about the whims of life.
>>268231786 I was 19 and always wanted to start my own business. Before I realized that no bank would loan me money I had gone to their site to learn about their retailer support and found out they were hiring.
I was working at Wal Mart and they were in the same state 2 hours away so I said fuck it and applied. Got the interview then the job. Been there four years now
>Have social anxiety issues and depression that goes back 15+ years >Not messed up enough to be considered SMI(Serious Mental Issues) so I can't claim disability >Said issues are still a major hindrance when it comes to finding work >Effectively in a limbo state where I'm too messed up to find work, but not messed up enough to live off the government
Such is life of someone who can't figure out what the fuck to do with himself and spends his days inside accomplishing nothing and working towards nothing.
>>268232143 that was the job i had for a year. i can't do that again, i almost killed myself working at a factory, there was this bridge on the way to work i walked by everyday, and everyday the urge to jump off it got stronger and stronger. i quit when i found myself staring off it for 10 minutes. everyone there was depressed, on drugs, or old and lost in life, a fucking hell hole. i promised myself i would NEVER work in a factory again.
>>268231506 Anon it's not that people are expected or forced to work, it's you have to give something to get something.
You want to go innawoods? Nothing is stopping you (there's pesky goverment and land bullshit but there's enough woods out there for you to go innawoods if you really wanted). Becoming self sufficient is a perfectly viable life choice.
You want to stay with the rest of civilization and use resources and goods people worked to produce? You have to give them something. You don't even have to get into "societal leaches" philosophy, the reason behind it is because nobody will give you that stuff they worked for/on for free. It technically doesn't *have* to be money and you don't *have* to work for that money but you need something and working for money is the simplest root.
Sure I guess a magical eutopia where literally nobody on earth has to work for anything because robots would be nice but on the other hand fuck no you're an idiot for even thinking that.
>bust ass at 3 min wage jobs >finally save up enough money for college >have no idea what i want to do >pick a degree that has courses that sound interesting >its some bullshit college specific arts/technology/english degree >graduate >back to working 3 min wage jobs
unless you have a plan, just keep on NEETing on. hard work and degrees don't just magically make things better. the working world was never meant to be enjoyed. anything you think is fun or interesting is worthless.
