After the weekly tennis match with the neighbors, we sat around the table and had some drinks as tradition dictates us to do.
Everyone was complaining that they had to go to work tomorrow morning, that wouldn't it be great if they wouldn't have to put up with all that hassle anymore.
I suggested I exchange situations with them, all three of them. They could sit home and worry and feel pretty useless, and I would be more than pleased to take over their places.
They quickly became silent and then changed the subject. Sometimes it takes a little shock treatment to set things straight again.
