An assistant must not eat the bean-jam buns that the teacher is planning on enjoying later without permission. An assistant must not devise schemes to prevent female guests from entering the teacher's office on visits, just because they're said to be pretty. An assistant must not reuse tea leaves for the teacher's cup while keeping the first brew for himself. An assistant must not begin by saying "Well, you see," when speaking to the teacher. An assistant must not expect to receive a higher salary than the teacher, or to sit in a more comfortable chair. An assistant must not, on a whim, print words like "President" on his business card.

As such, I no longer plan on continuing my role as assistant, henceforth and forevermore.
