Why do people say the real world only works 9-5?

I can’t stand working mornings. I hate it so much. So every job I’ve worked afternoons or midnights. And my aunt ordered me a job working 9-5 at an office (don’t want to work in an office either) and I said no and my grandma said “the real world works 9-5” so I guess since I’m working 3-11 every day I’m not in the real world? 

Update:

*offered, not ordered

  • If you're working full time then you're in the 'real world'. I work from 10 am to about 7 pm, Mon-Fri. Not all full time jobs are 9-5 jobs. I don't like early mornings either.
