I loved every bit of this!  

My dad was a medical doctor (3 months retired) and is one of the smartest people I know.  I myself am an Electrical Engineer but until now I've never deeply considered his impact on my life despite having completely different professions.  I'll have to write down my findings and present it to him for fathers day next year.

Thanks for sharing!

@C VanDorne: I seem to have failed in my conveyance since I was actually going for the opposite sentiment.

I was joking -- I knew what you meant :-)

Hmm.  I seem to have failed in my conveyance since I was actually going for the opposite sentiment.  Oh, well.

@C VanDorne: I suggested I might just start working.  He said "Okay, start paying rent tomorrow."

LOL -- that sounds like my mom -- in England you could leave school at 16 (after your O-Level exams) and start work, or you could leave school at 18 (after your A-Level exams) and start work, or you could go on to university.

I had some friends who were planning on leaving school at 16 -- their argument is that they would get a headstart in he workplace over the people who stayed on at school to get more education.

I told my mom -- she said "That's a GREAT idea... you're NOT doing it" ... end of conversation LOL

My fathers influence was brief and strong.  In my second semester of Community College I vocalized to him that I was doubting this whole college thing.  I suggested I might just start working.  He said "Okay, start paying rent tomorrow."  The exchange quickly concluded with me saying I'd be up in my room studying.

And the rest is history, as they say.  Thanks, dad.
