Wei: What’s wrong? You look like you’re in pain.

Jason: My stomach is acting up again.

Wei: It’s all of this stress. I don’t know how anyone can cope with the pressures you’re under.

Jason: It’s nothing. I’ll just take a pill for my stomach.

Wei: That won’t solve the problem. Look at you. You look worn out. Are you losing sleep, too?

Jason: I have had trouble sleeping.

Wei: It’s no wonder. At home, you have the demands of raising two kids on your own, and at work, you’re in a dog-eat-dog environment everyday.

Jason: I have to admit that my nerves are shot, but what can I do?

Wei: Maybe we can work something out. To start, how about if I watch your kids for a few hours this weekend so you can get some rest?

Jason: I couldn’t ask you to do that. You have to take care of your own kids.

Wei: So, what’s two more?

Jason: If you really don’t mind, I’ll take you up on that. I could really use a breather.

Wei: It’s set, then. Here, take one of these pills. If it doesn’t kill you, it’ll make you stronger.

Jason: Thanks!
