    I have a little-big problem.

    I am private candidate for A levels and I don't want to study 24/7. I was looking for a part-time job, and I told my family that are many jobs for bar/pubs in town. My dad was extremely mad because he was a pastor for many years and he doesn't want to see his son working in a environment where you find prostitues and gay people. (That's what he said).
    He recommended me to work in a factory. I don't have any problem to work in a factory. The problem is that I don't drive and all the factories are not in town (like 45-60m by car).

    Any advice?

    Thank You

    Your father sounds very judgemental. Working in a pub would give you customer service skills and expose you to a wide range of people which would be useful experience for your future.

    Work where you want to. If your dad has a problem with you working alongside people who have a different sexual orientation then he probably doesn't agree with the equal opportunities act which barres companies from discriminating against sexuality, gender, age etc and that's the actual problem. Many gay people are employed in many different places, such as retail, which in my opinion would be a useful experience for students to have.
