He’s A Doctor, Not An Engineer

(Our surname is Scott. My dad holds a Ph.D., but very rarely brings up the fact and doesn’t usually call himself ‘Doctor.’)

Me: “Is it right that they never actually said ‘Beam me up, Scotty’ on Star Trek?”

Dad: “Yes. I think they would be more likely to call him Mr. Scott.”

Me: “Okay then, Dad, will you beam me up?”

Dad: “Yes, as soon as you acknowledge my Ph.D..”
