“It’s past your bed time. Go to sleep.”
“Why should I sleep now?”

“Because you’re nine years old and you should sleep on time.”
“Why aren’t you sleeping now?”

“I have some job to do.”
“Please do it tomorrow.”

“You know I was watching that movie for two hours when I should have been working. So now I have to sit up late and finish those two hours worth of work. That’s my punishment for being lazy.”


“Please don’t keep changing your shorts every hour. The laundry bag is overflowing. I can’t keep up.”
“That’s because you’re lazy and you watch movies and you don’t do your job on time.”

Yes, friends, I told you so. You can be honest with some people at some time or the other, but not with all the people all the time.
