Why must University student/graduate know everything

This morning, my dad took out the water bill and asks me something. I take a look that B.M phrase and said I don’t know. Then he scolded me, “Why a grown up university student like you can’t answer that simple question?”
I was thinking like “duh…. You also grown up what, why don’t you know about that too?”
What I really trying to say that, when we keep growing up, when gain experience, then we tend to stereotype certain things according to our past experience. That is what we further away from the youngsters. It is very common that parent think that their child should be very excel if their child is in the college or university. When their child is out of the university, their child should know “everything”! However, how could that possible?! Even if I did learn a lot in my university life, but most of it is about subject related to my course. How could a doctor repair a machine or an artist do a economic analysis? Does my stand make sense?
