The Megillah says about Mordechai (10:3):

דורש טוב לעמו ודובר שלום לכל זרעו

He inquires about the good (welfare) of his people and says 'Hello' to his children.

Maybe I'm old-fashioned. I would think that a father should first be concerned about the welfare of his own children before the welfare of his fellowmen. And, I would also think that he should give his children a much bigger greeting and a huge hug and have a longer conversation when he sees his children. Much more than just a passing "Hello".

Did Mordechai's promotion as vice minister make him so pompous that he forgot his priorities?

This question is Purim Torah and is not intended to be taken completely seriously. See the Purim Torah policy.
