She probably thinks that the way you choose to live your life is strange as well.  Yes, she definitely sounds like she does things very differently than most people I know.  But, that doesn’t mean that you need to judge her.

I don’t pluck my eyebrows, one of the joys of having blond hair.

Wow I have never met anyone like that before. But if I did I think I would want to ask sooooo many questions!

@troubled – I am blond too so I wax – cleaning up all the baby hairs around the eyebrows really makes a difference and makes your eyes pop – I recommend it!

She’s never made a long distance call before????!!!

I’m always quite nervous for girls (well, at 22 – women) who are that sheltered. They seem so much more naive and easy for someone (unscrupulous men in particular!) to take advantage of. 🙁

Um, i would be totally judging away from my cubicle!

She’s going to have to figure it out awfully fast if she wants to work in the “real world” as an engineer.  Nobody will ever respect her if she’s a sheltered little girl.

I don’t think my manager would never hire somebody like that for our team because if you don’t know how to make phone calls, how in the world can you work a computer? Do virtual meetings? All the other tasks you have to figure out for yourself?

Yeah.

PS i’m not surprised about said eyebrows/lack of style. I have met very few well groomed women engineer in my day. They’re pretty lax about makeup/style in general. Drives me nuts by the way…=]

Ok – I was super confused about the eyebrow plucking comments until I read that you deleted that part…

Uh, I think I would be a little weirded out also. And I agree totally with gabrielleelise

Not judging, but really – they need to cut the cord. She’s 22 – if she doesn’t get at least some life skills she will be in a bad way. Agree with gabrielleelise.

@ejs: Most women that were in my engineering program at Purdue were very well groomed.  I plucked my eyebrows, mostly b/c I’d have a unibrow if I didn’t.  I don’t wear make often b/c my skin gets irritated and breaks out from EVERY type of foundation, powder, and moisturizer I’ve used.

As for her, she’s 22 and if she can’t make a long distance call then she’s in the wrong field.  I don’t understand how she could get a internship when at my school ALOT, if not all the students who can do such a thing and work very hard are finding it impossible to find internships.  She should thank her lucky stars.

  Ok I dont mean to sound odd but the whole calling her dad “daddy” thing would TOTALLY creep me out! I dont care who you are at some point your dad stops being daddy and you realize your a full grown woman only 4 year olds have “daddys”.

  I love the show 19 kids and counting and I think their faith is SOOO admireable but we dont live in a world where being totally nieve protects you. No offence to the girl but if I were you I would kinda clue her in on some things. Shes never gonna make it in a profession dominated by males. Thats so sad…..

Purdue must be an anomoly, Kare =]

I did notice that civil/architectural women tend to stray away from the stereotype. at least at my school!

Ps the “daddy” thing is SUPER weird.
