I don't want to be derogatory but the people I worked around in blue collar jobs were not concerned with higher thought. They were concerned about smoking, drinking, and going to bars and picking up horny divorced women. I know those peeps. I am from the world of proudly drunk, ignorant, lazy, angry people prone to violence. And those were just my parentsI have been running from those Blue Collar types my whole life with varying degrees of success. But I found just being smart and getting my ticket punched (getting degrees) didn't really get me into the club.When I was 19 I went from a job that was almost exclusively low class/blue collar to one where I worked 1 on 1 with lots of happy peppy recent collage graduate types. They all assumed I was about 22 or 23 yrs old. I'm thinking "Do I look old..?" It was because they all thought I had a degree or at least had done a stretch in college. I modeled myself after Ward Cleaver and the guy in Father Knows Best on TV. They were what I thought actual adults should be like.Then I had to run away from home and eat at the same time. Hard to associate with the genteeeeel class like that.I was not into drinking alcohol and did not hang out with the crowd in college that consumed alcohol.I have yet to find a "crowd" in america that is not into alcoholism except the AA crowd and uptight religious wackos.
