Dude, don't go work for her dad. They are trying to turn you into what they think is good for her. You've got to do what you want and if they can't except it then they're not for you.

Furthermore, you'll be his slave and your co-workers will hate you. He'll come down from the office to yell at you and your co-workers will call you a brown-noser for talking to "the boss".

This is a lot of talk about digestion..now i'm going to get hungry for some noodles

I am glad your girl supports your dreams..hey- thats what I thought mine could do. I don't want her to have the same dream just for us to accept each others..is that such a strange thing for a relationship?

Lawyerdad-

thanks for that nice story..I wonder if Ted had someone to accept him for all those years...maybe just the people listening to his music.

Texas_jack-

I appreciate your advice..her dad already yells a lot look forward to more of that..maybe she'll be like her father when she's his age ..I better be careful

Why not just try the new job for a few months? If it doesn't work out you can always dump your wife and go to CA. If youre planning on SoCal Ill even buy you an ice cream when you get here.

Hey guys-

I want to give you an update..last night my girls father suggested we drink whiskey and after some glasses we started talking business. This was a mistake because I told him that I thought his work is boring and I dont think the industry has a great future

After I didn't think he was so angry but my girl told me differently this morning so I dont need to tell you i'm in a little trouble with her at the moment

now I better not mention California or else..

There isn't anything wrong with having dreams or following your own path, but (and this is the crux) if you see this girl as your wife/life partner, then you have the responsibility to provide for her, and your family to come. Don't you? I have thought of changing professions myself although most of the time I was single, but even now, when I'm seeing someone, I know that despite the shortlived hardship of the change, in the future I would still be able to provide financially.

Regarding her father, it's fine to disagree with his view of his profession ie call it boring and doomed to extinction, but can you provide a viable alternative vocation for yourself? Until you do that, you don't really a leg to stand on. Sorry to be such a downer but trying to be 'realistic'.

What's with the California obsession? Have you ever been here? It isn't that great.

Hello Cho-

thank you for your concern about our future..but Ive had a good job for over 3 years now.. so her father doesnt need to worry about my back account at the moment.

Hopkins-

dont you know California has the best of life?- Sun, waves, the Beach Boys, the best burger place, and people who like to enjoy just like me

Okay, that changes things. So you don't need to listen to 'Dad' about the job then

wilson obviously has a thing for California, that none of us can totally understand, be that as it may, there are very few places (if any) that have as much to offer as SoCal, and I'm not just talking about the weather. However, last winter it was amusing to be able to spend a morning skiing at some pretty decent slopes with nice fresh powder and spending the afternoon at the beach with sun and 80 degree weather. While some people do consider LA to be a cultural wasteland and not particularly urban, there are some decent restaurants of all types and a dizzying array of ethnic food including some of the best Asian cuisine I've encountered.

Hopkins Dude- I'll trade you. You come live in Tex-Ass and I'll come back there. I hear Baylor has a pretty good med school.

Hey Steve B-

Want to share an apartment with me ?

I think we're too similar to be the odd couple
