"They're going to pay you X dollars a year? But that's fantastic! You're rich!"

"I don't like the way you say that. You make it sound as if I had won the lottery."

"Lottery, new job, what's the difference? Good fortune should be celebrated."

"Not like that. If they're going to pay me X dollars a year, that means I have one year to create X dollars of economic value. It's a serious responsibility."
