The poor stressed Resident Bureaucrat. Once, when he resurfaced from his piles of notes and books, he commented sadly: "If my life were better, I would be watching TV and playing with my kids during weekends instead of this."
(This is a person gone soft in the head. Under normal circumstances, he would never make a statement like that, ever.)
Then, he told me it was all my fault for pushing him into this pit of hell by urging him to go study because I wanted to stay overseas and not work.
That is so blatantly... true, of course. And I almost feel guilty for enjoying life here while he slogs away. So, if he stays up until 3am to do his assignments, I stay up with him - and watch TV.
Well, okay, not helping.
