  • He wrote down three points: “Stop smoking”, “Don’t bully Chwi( the cat)”, “If you have a problem, tell me immediately”.
  • While she wrote 3 points as well: “Do not enter my room carelessly”, “Do not pressure me”, “If something happens, communicate it”
  • She became fixated on the point “Stop smoking” because it is a habit that habitual smoker simply doesn’t stop doing.
  • Even her dad tried to stop her but was unsuccessful.
  • He told her about his hatred for cigarette smell  and asked that she made an effort by smoking moderately.
  • Apparently she was okay with that condition as she moved the “don’t bully Chwi” point and asked who Chwi was.
  • She is confused on why the cat would be named “chwi”, which means rat.
  • He stated that cats like rats, so he named it after rats.

  • They finally agreed to each other’s terms and signed.
