Someone who against all odds has found a way to escape the grind. They aren't owned by a boss, they aren't losing sleep over grades, and they most certainly could be homeless. Also known as a lumpen.

Often used as an insult by salty workaholics to little effect.
"You really livin' that lumpen lifestyle lmao"
"yeah, that's right, I'm a proud NEET you Marx and Engels stanning bitch"

The worst form of punishment inflicted upon high schoolers who take science.

This exam is only dangerous for 2 reasons:
1. Physics in an exam meant to take medicine course, that's illogical.
2. Negative marking: That's illegal.
Without the following 2 this exam wouldn't have been bullshit and won't be punishing torture for students.
NEET is hell.

Another acronym from sociologists... NEET stands for 'Not in Education, Employment or Training'. I'm not sure, yet, whether it has any global significance or derogatory overtones. However, like chav, it seems to be particularly applicable to a social under-class lacking drive, motivation or ambition. I part this is due to poverty and lack of opportunity. But this burgeoning classification will soon become the darling of right-wingers.
Tokyo NEETs have recently been marching.

The North East in the UK has a pronounced abundance of NEETs

An acronym -'Not in Education, Employment or Training'. Todays use usually goes with that the person is still living off their parents income (living ith them is not a requirement, just makes it better). Thus is epically funny.
