Just because he's your father doesn't mean you've suddenly earned a job at his company. While it's be nice, you should still put forth the same effort to get there as anyone else.

Well, the silver lining is that it will feel better to have earned your position rather than have it handed to you because your father runs the place. Good luck on your interview! :)

Shock! Your father is doing the morally correct thing and treating you like just another prospective employee instead of shafting over someone more qualified! He's such a horrible person for being a fair employer and not treating you like a princess because you share DNA! The horror!

I actually did mean princess. People stereotypically treat girls like they're made of glass and need everything done for them. Calling someone 'princess' elevates the implication to mean that the person is too inept to take care of themself. Where I live, it's used to describe anyone like that, not just girls. (This is a bit of a simplification. I could go into detail about the cultural baggage attached to the two and why one is an insult while the other isn't, but I'd rather not get in an argument over a dissection of residual gender bias in the English language.)

Because I was in hour thirty of pain-driven sleep deprivation, as well as under the influence of medication for said pain and couldn't think of a different term at the time that would emphasis both the outrage that OP thinks he should be treated differently because of his status and that he was being so pissy about not being treated like the best thing since sliced bread. If I'd been able to think of a term that didn't rely on the gender bias, I'd have used it, though in retrospect I could have just used royalty.

It's a start, op. He could have told you no, but instead he gave you the chance to earn it. I promise you it will feel better having done so when you get it. Good luck on your interview, I'm sure you'll do fine.
