get a life 是侮辱用语(for abuse)

据我浅见,get a life 是“潇洒生活”的意思,作为侮辱用语倒是第一次看见,
能给个context吗?

谢谢!

an all-round review of the idiom "get a life" from wikipedia

Get a life is an American English idiom. 1.Used as a command, the phrase generally instructs its addressee to go out and make their way in the world, without being supported by outside sources such as parents or benefactors. 2. It may also be directed at someone who is perceived as boring or single-minded like morons, to suggest they acquire some other, more practical interests or hobbies and get dates, find a job, move to their own house etc.

3. The phrase is also employed by people [Person A] who feels that someone else [Person B] is spending too much time and energy on their [Person A's] life. It is another way of saying "Get your own life", or "Stay out of my business."

The term was popularized by William Shatner's appearance in a 1987 episode of Saturday Night Live, in which he tells a group of trekkies to "get a life." However, evidence of the term's use in the vernacular extends at least back into the 1970s, perhaps as part of a mainstream backlash against hippies. 4. More recently, in addition to these examples, it has been applied to so-called workaholics and others who are perceieved as dedicated to their work (out of "labor of love" as opposed to money or loyalty to the company) but not taking the time to relax or enjoy life.


1. 独立生活 to earn your own bread and butter
2. 做点正事 do something more practical or rewarding
3. 少管闲事 mind your own business
4. 享受生活 be relaxed and go enjoy life
