  • Tell her you make enough to satisfy your lifestyle. If she persist just tell her you really aren't comfortable talking about money

  • I agree with Lucky.... just make sure you say something along those lines and change the subject. Or just tell her you don't feel comfortable discussing that information

  • I agree with lucky and bcauseimthemom... I would be blunt, but not rude, while at the same time trying to blow it off with a joke...

  • Why does she want to know?
    Deduct 20% of what you make and tell her this amount. (The 20% does not count because it is the money you set aside for rainy days.)

  • I don't mind telling people, but if I did, I'd just straight up tell them that it's none of their business.

  • I'd just say, "Sorry, I don't discuss money." Or you could ask her why she wants to know.
