I work in the medical device industry and today a customer from SLC is auditing us. When he said he was from SCL I knew he was mormon, looked like he should be sitting up on the stand during sacrament meeting.
He went to BYU and finished a year later than me with the same degree. I'm sure we had classes together and we chatted about the teachers we had.
No biggie at this point, but as we went around the table and introduced ourselves, his mormon conditioning kicked in. Most of us on the audit team are married with kids. One guy is married with no kids (by choice) and is in his forties.
After the kid less guy's intro, the auditor mentioned that they get a lot of interns working at his company in SLC and they always remind them to not make their career the only thing in life...don't forget to get married and start your family!
That felt weird, and very mormon!
