No your dad is not stupid at all. Sometimes, situation make you had to accept an hard work for low income. But if you are not silly, you do not live like that a very long time. You do like your father. You find a better job. My goal when I work = earn a maximum of money with a minimum of pain. I do not want to be a martyr of work, a stakhanovist, the best employee of week by Mc Donald. I did not work for glory or pleasure but for money. If salary is low I can not work.
