was he a barber? a hair cutter?
anything unusual about his job?
did he carry on the trade of his parent?
if his parents were more thoughtful, would some other talents have pointed him to another career?
was the above statement obvious before he became a barber?

would this puzzle work if you said "he might haven't been a waiter"?
anything significant about the location at which he works? his clients?
anything unusual about his parents?
instead of thoughtful, can we say careful?
or considerate of his coreer potential? considerate about something physical about him?
are siblings relevant?

anything to do with the musical "sweeney todd: the demon barber of fleet street"? this is the one where the barber is a serial killer and gives his customers a "very close shave"; his girlfriend uses his customers in her meat pies...
anything along these lines?

lol sorry

is his first name something to do with being a barber? his surname? or is one of his names actually barber? or some variant? is one of them something one might do whilst being a barber? or maybe something barbers use?

SPOILER!

If only his parents, surnamed Druff, were more considerate, they wouldn't have named their son, Dan, therefore making him Dan Druff! This is a true story, and I am pretty sure that the name gave him some sort of boost for his career. Just imagine if he went to a univerity, "And P.H.D in hair care, Dan Druff. LoL!
