Me: Am I too hard on Person X? (Name has been removed to protect the innocent.)
John: What do you mean, too hard?
Me: I don't know... you know... too hard on them, with my opinions and ideas and stuff... you know, too hard on X so that they won't want tell me about their life, like, fully.
John: Well, no.
Me: (sigh) (of relief)
John: I mean, you're not any harder on X than you are on everyone else.
Me: (sigh) (of resignation)
John: And yet, they all do still tell you everything. It is a mystery.
