Interesting how we don't yet have the right to call it quits...(in most countries).

... we don't yet have the right to call it quits...(in most countries).

Reminded me of this bit from "Kissing Hank's Ass":

John: "If you kiss Hank's ass, He'll give you a million dollars [....]
Me:   "And has He given you a million dollars?"
John: "Well no. You don't actually get the money until you leave town."
Me:   "So why don't you just leave town now?"
Mary: "You can't leave until Hank tells you to, or you don't get the money, and He kicks the shit out of you."
