Some new jobs' frightening rewards
Some new job offers feature a very "appealing" rewards section. Landing them should make you happy... However I heard of people disturbed by a recurring nightmare: after one year spent trying to fool the system to get the reward, they face a pitiless boss showing them an obscure metric on a never-seen-before spreadsheet, filled with dark red figures up to row n. 1485. With those precise, sharp figures the boss scratches them, finally knocking them out with a merciless judgement that will never improve the quality of their work.
Suddently, they wake up... Although it was just a nightmare, it seemed so real.
