Is wanderer offensive or despective?.. like saying one is extremely lazy?.. or how do you call someone very lazy lol
No, there is nothing intrinsically derogatory about the word. A specific sentence or context might make it so. Do you have one?
HumbertoDeOz, I am often confused about the use of “lol”, and I am interested to know why you wrote it at the end of your question, which is apparently neither light-hearted not amusing. For my interest, could you explain what you meant by it?
“He is a bit of a wanderer.”
What does it mean?
He’s a wanderer to a small degree.
Definition courtesy of thefreedictionary.com/a+bit (look under the “idioms” section)
He is a bit of a wanderer.– I suspect that it means that he doesn’t live in one place or work at a job very long. However, there’s still not enough context. It’s not idiomatic.
‘lazybones’ or ‘couch-potato’, perhaps?
lazybones or couch potato… they might be ones of what im looking for. I mean someone who wastes his time being lazy all day, something despective.
Like when someone tells you “I`ve been sitting on my couch all day watching tv and playing videogames”, one might say your so lazybones?..
and Dozy ever since I began chatting on msn, me and all people I met on forums and stuff used the emoticon “xD” a lot. Even on sentences that are slightly funny or not funny at all or “xDDDDDDD…” when there is something really funny going on. But I noticed not many english speakers know “xD” so I use lol instead. Its just me being foolish haha
In this case I think they could be called a ‘layabout’ – someone who does no work and avoids anything that involves any effort. I’d say ‘lazybones’ could work here too.
You could definitely tell them ‘You are such a couch-potato!’. Not sure, but I’d say that ‘You are such a lazybones!’ would be okay in this context too. Just to play it on the safe side (and if we get no opinions from the native speakers) I would go with ‘couch-potato’.
