Mom is Always Right

Major case of tunnel vision going on right now. Well illustrated by following conversation:
WV:
Mom, I'm so tired. Everyone at work is exhausted too.
Preparing for this test is just taking a huge toll on everyone!

MOM:
Well, you gotta do what you gotta do.
Now how does this test affect you again?
If you don't pass, do you not get your license?

WV:
No, Mom. I already have my license.

Mom:
Will they stop you from going to the next year?

WV:
No.

MOM:
Will you have to retake it?

WV:
Well, you have to take it every year,
but no, you don't have to retake it if you fail.

MOM:
So what are ya'll so worried about?

WV:
Well, your program director gets your score,
so you don't want to be TOO far off the curve.
That'd be really embarassing.

MOM:
Hm. I see.
So you're studying all hours of the day
and stressing out just so you won't be embarassed.

WV:
*sheepishly*
Um, I guess so...
