This story sounds familiar.

At the risk of sounding too class-conscious myself, our Dear Ol' Dads had a point. I'll refrain from calling the feather duster and box cutter-equipped coworkers as "slack-jawed" or "brain-dead," but the point is valid that your occupation will dictate the kind of people with whom you spend the bulk of your waking hours. If they don't share the values, life experience, or interests you do, it can be dreadful.

I did graduate college, but it took me nearly thirty years and two career changes to end up somewhere close to what Dad had in mind for me, and I regret not putting forth the effort sooner.

I'm not a fan of cocktail parties myself, but the few I have attended would have been much more pleasant if I had met an educator or two there to talk to. I'm sure your father is proud.
