An adult conversation

(while working beside my brother-in-law at 10:20 pm)

Brother-in-law: Is your company paying for your new laptop?
Me: I’m paid enough to buy my own stuff.
Brother-in-law: Let me teach you something valuable – you are never paid enough. Are you doing an adult’s job? Can you live on your salary if you had a family? Food, shelter, education for your kids? You are NEVER PAID ENOUGH.
Me (distracted by work): I’m trying to make a flaming lizard disappear properly.
Brother-in-law: Maybe you are paid enough.
