    Mother: Dentist
    Father: Orthodontist

    Which should mean my upbringing was far more priviledged than it actually was.

    But it would appear my parents didn't find all their money until I left home... Not that I'm bitter or anything.

    Father: Doctor (Surgeon)
    Mother: Doctor by training, teacher (and teachers' teacher) by choice.

    Children of doctors, I've noticed, tend to either go on to become doctors or be completely averse to the idea.

    I concur. Tongue Out (I would not want to be a doctor).

    Mother: She was a single mother of 5. Worked two jobs, and still taught her boys how to be men. She's disabled now, yet still takes care of elderly in her area. Remarried, and living in Arizona.

    Father: Convicted-Felon. Met him a couple of times. Spent most of my life in prison, and is still doing time in Georgia for posession of narcotics, fire-arms and false-identification.

    My mother's a physiotherapist who damaged her spine (how ironic) whilst helping a patient about 10 months ago, since on sickness leave and looking to rejoin the NHS

    Father's a chemical/process engineer, he designs sewage treatment plants. Anyone remember those refugee camps in Albania around 2001? They had toilets and massive temporary water treatment buildings, yeah... that was him (well, him and a handful of other people).

    But right now my mum's fixing up foodage in the kitchen for dinner tonight and my dad's replacing some of the inner-doors in this house.
