I try my best not to.

How do you avoid it?

I just say a big tech comapny or a local xyz company.

I do to near and dear ones, and tell them not to tell anyone haha

I try not to talk about work at all when I'm with friends and family, to be honest. But when it does come up, I never use specifics.

Nooo. I act like it's some big important secret even if the client just wants a nicer-looking food delivery app.

Lol! Hahahahaha!
