'I HAVE a dog!'
or
'I DON'T WANT A JOB!'

If someone isn't actually just yelling that at me, then I explain how work is exploitative, unfulfilling, demeaning, compulsory, hierarchical, etc., and how absurd it is to spend the majority of the waking hours of your life doing something you don't care about for someone else. That usually provokes the response that this is the way the world is and will be, to which I reply that it doesn't have to be. Then they ask for alternatives, and I tell them I don't have the answers for them but it's worth imagining something better if we can agree that work sucks.
