  • Will it be less fun to steal office supplies when I’m the one buying them in the first place?

  • Can I get rich, or will I still have to pay taxes?

  • Can I transition from drinking from a flask undetected by my boss to drinking from it undetected by my employees?

  • Am I just doing this as an excuse to hire a busty secretary?

  • Do you have to seek out cheap, undocumented labor, or does it just find you?
