It’s who you know

One of JM’s students has an older brother. This is quite uncommon, and usually entails an extremely large fee paid to the government for the second child, something akin to a year’s salary from what we’ve been told.

Usually.

"Did your parents have to pay the fine?"

"They did, but only a little one."

"Why?"

"They know someone in the government."

And that’s how it works.
