Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg revealed that his daughter is not only unaware that he owns the game Beat Saber, but also thinks he works at a bookstore.
Beat Saber is a popular Virtual Reality rhythm game where a player slashes the beats from the accompanying music.
Facebook acquired Beat Games, the maker of the game in November 2019, joining a gaming division of Facebook called Oculus Studio.
"Apparently the reason my daughter thinks Beat Saber isn't part of my job is because she's convinced I work at a bookstore," he wrote on his page.
The 37-year-old is married to Priscilla Chan and is a father of two daughters Maxima and August.
They revealed that as much as the family has an estimated wealth of over $74 billion (KSh 7.9 trillion), they have grounded their two children to ensure they remain humble.
Most of his fans opined that it is normal for her to have such a conclusion because the name of his company has 'book' in it.
"I am sometimes painfully literal myself so I can appreciate her line of thinking. Also bookstores are awesome."
Ifeanyi Charisma Ezeji:
"You can't be working for Facebook and deny you don't work in a bookstore. Her argument can't be resolved until you redefine #Book and how you came about #facebook. You want to play with her intelligence?"
Another group opined that the young girl is confusing him with Jeff Bezos, who started the world's largest online retailer Amazon by selling books.
The post also attracted comments from fellow parents whose children made wrong conclusions about their careers based on what they picked from conversations or saw them do.
"When my son was five years old he was convinced that I was good when playing monster legends because I worked rescuing elfos and forest magical creatures - I teach environmental education."
"I would go visit my dad at his office only on Fridays (payday) and he would be signing checks. So that’s all I saw him do. When he would come home worn out I would say “all you do is sign checks.. why are you so tired?” He had 300+ employees."
The reactions to Zuckerberg's post prove that it is prudent for parents to sit down and inform their children their line of work to make them understand what puts food on their tables.
