A little contract (or is that contact?) negotiation.

Hu-Dad does most of his busyness from his study, which is great because we are to help him throughout the day with his work.

Throughout the day, we maintain a certain level of professionalism that just leaves him speechless.

Sometimes, Hu-Dad says we help him so much that he can just quit working because nothing else could possibly be accomplished. Is that awesome or what?

Quitting Time!
