What they want to hear

They don't really want to know, they are just being polite and making conversation so they can tell you what they do.

If they ask, I tell them I'm in the Iron and Steel business.

If they want to know more I tell them:
"My wife takes in ironing and I steal."

LOL But really, if you tell them too much, they want you to trade for them.
So I usually just tell them I am retired and just surf the net a lot and do what ever I want.

They translate that into "He's a bum and watches porn all day"

It is no one's business but mine, what I do.
