Defending Honeybun's Right to Choose His Own Job
A friend of my dad's asked him if Honeybun might be interested in working for a flooring company he knows of that is hiring. Dad reached out to me over the phone this morning with the whole "It's a great opportunity! They only do flooring for wealthy people in mansions! Sure, it's 10-hour days, but he'd be making like $28,000 a year!"
My response was "Honeybun did say yesterday that he'd like to look for a full-time job, but I know he'd rather look into the auto industry. Text me any information you've got and contact info, and I'll send it to him to think about. Thanks!" I thought I was being reasonable. Yes, Honeybun works a low-end job, and yes the auto industry won't make him rich, but that doesn't mean he should just jump at a "better" opportunity, right? Or am I being blindsided by love?
I'm irritated, because instead of doing what I asked, Dad talked to his friend and the friend scheduled an interview on Saturday. "I can even pick him up!" Dad says. Honeybun has work that day, and I already know he won't be interested in this field. I told Dad he'd get an answer tonight.
