"Help! Help! HELP!" you yell, still lying on the floor. You decide to writhe around a little bit, just for added effect.

A small crowd forms around you, and the most important-looking figure of the bunch opens his mouth to speak. "Who are you, and what are you doing here?"

"I don’t know. I honestly don’t know," you reply. "A minute ago, I was eating curry at the Midsummer Night’s Market, and then… and then I was lying right here!"

"I see," replies the important-looking guy. "Well, this happens to be the office for Tattle Tale Entertainment, where we make everyone’s wildest dreams come true in the form of downloadable episodic adventure games for your home PC. And we just so happen to be looking for a poor unfortunate soul willing to lick and stuff envelopes for us for slightly less than minimum wage. Would you, by any chance, be interested?"

Your heart skips a beat. You’ve been wanting to work in the video game industry ever since you were old enough to know what video games even were… and yet, after your last stint licking and stuffing envelopes for slightly less than minimum wage, you promised yourself that you’d never, ever put yourself through such torture again.

  1. Accept the job.
  2. Decline the job politely, then run away as fast as you can.
