Nope. While she is at school she is not working her actress job, she is working her student job. Many people seperate their private and professional lives. When I am at home, I am not a Telephone Worker, I am daddy. You phone can stay broken until I start my shift at 8am for all I care.* Unless my employer calls me and I forget to have my wife answer the phone and say I'm not home, I do not want to think about work. I want to enjoy time with my family, or study, or just relax and watch TV. I do not know off the top of my head what number to call for a specific service or what anything costs, or even how to fix common household items (not my job, so I've never been trained to do it). I don't mind if someone asks a question to be social or to open conversation, but people frequently ask me to do things that even if I knew how to do them would be ethical violations ("Can you get me free phone service?" "Can you get me a discount on my bill?" "Can you install a phoneline/jack?" "Can you get me some of the electrical tape from the storage room?"). It is amazing how many people will ask a relative stranger for a favor that could cost me my job.

(*actually, it can stay broken longer than that because I'm not in that deopartment, but that's not my point. )
