A normal person would, if requesting assistance, do everything to enable that aid.

Instead of giving Lynn all the details, he removed the most essential information.
The point was not regaining lost wages, not being reinstated, the point was to make Lynn, the lawyer he consulted, ‘suffer’ failure.

He could not conceive that Lynn saw him for what he was, saw his request for its true purpose.
Knowing a person is an Abuser is protection. It prevents one from investing time and thought in a ‘project’ which is a ‘MacGuffin’.
