Salaryman by Meg Pei
All work and no play makes Salaryman a crazy boy. Waves of temptation and a feeling of general funk are usually enough for a salaryman to cave in and create a hesokuri.

On the same day, he then would send the rest of the bonus to his family account by bank transfer. The key to the deception? How can a check that big possibly go unnoticed by a wife?
The reason is as follows, and it led me to grasp why salary-skimming and hesokuri runs wild as it does. The upshot of this deduction at source is that a wife would likely have no opportunity to notice a difference between a bank-deposited salary and recorded income at the local tax office.
