He has worked diligently all of these years and has been officially commended for his long service with the company. However, he was never able to advance in business, maybe because of his too good-natured personality, and ended up as a mere manager. To make matters worse, all of his children, a daughter and two sons, have no regular jobs, regardless of being graduates from prestigious universities. Although he has never admitted that he failed to raise them properly, he seems to feel sorry for neglecting them while he was too busy with his work. After retirement, he intends to devote himself to helping his family, but he is not sure whether he can regain their trust at this stage.
