I was an SOB

Back in the 1960s my Dad used his influence to get me a summer job with an industrial construction company. I learned from my co-workers I was an SOB (Son of a Bigshot). I delivered materials and tools to chemical plants around the state as in Union Carbide, Allied Chemical, Merck, GAF, American Cyanamid, Hoffman-LaRoche, and others I was advised by the veterans to arrive at Hoffman-LaRoche around lunch time when the female office workers exited their buildings and walked to lunch. It was a darn good suggestion.
