Kain- "Can I play the Wii?"
Me- "Sure, as soon as your Saturday chores are done."
Kain, in a wailing shriek as he stomps off- "You know, I worked hard all week! And now I have to do chores today, and chores tomorrow, and then work again all week again next week, and then I'll grow up and get a job and work until I DIE!"
Me- "Yep! That's pretty much how it goes."
