I told him I was between jobs.
"What kinda work are you suited for?"
Umm... what, suddenly I'm a heifer being sized up for market?
"Concrete worker? Bricklayer?"

Closer, but erf... I told him, "I don't like to talk about work."
"Well, you better," he told me.
Sure, whatever, gramps. What I really meant was, I don't like to talk to people who can't think of anything to talk about besides work.
