Joe can see that Pip is getting a view of a society that he may never be part of, and Joe feels that the experience will give Pip unrealistic aspirations. Pip himself notes at the beginning of Chapter 14 that his experience with Miss Havisham - and more particularly Estella - has changed him. He is 'ashamed of it was all coarse and common.'
