This job sounds so easy I could do it in my sleep

I like this, but it feels like something bigger should happen if you get fired. Maybe for the rest of your life you only dream about being homeless and unemployed, living out of a cardboard box or something.
So, do they get paid?
I upvoted when I read the word "fired" and the sentence immediately following.
Would you still upvote if I took Scantron's suggestion?
That's got that done. I took Scantron's suggestion for being fired, made the thing less horrible to be affected by, made senior management interesting, and added payment for your work.
This is so good. This is so very very good.
It even sounds like a straight up fair business. As long as you don't get fired. And is five days of boring drudgery during sleep worth two days of awesome dreams? It's just so good and so thoughtful on all the right levels.
But if you ever get less than 8 hours of sleep you'll end up a hobo in your dreams for the rest of your life.
EDIT: I just saw the title for this and it is amazing.
dream job doh hoh hoh
No, no Worst than a Hobo!
Also the name is amazing, thanks for calling me to it.
Edit: This SCP makes you want to be able to use it, but that you need at least 8 hours of sleep everyday or else… It really makes it a cool SCP.
It's not that harsh. You'd have to be getting less sleep for an extended period of time. And management would probably be sympathetic. You might even be able to negotiate shortened hours for a commensurate pay cut. Or even quit without negative effects. But you don't want to get fired.
Mmm… would it be worth to make an experiment/addedum with someone that quit? Probably not?
Eh, don't think so. If people feel it would improve the article, I suppose I could.
It would not improve the article. For me, the best part of this is the implied rat race trap. It's not malevolent. They aren't out to get you. They make you an offer that you are free to refuse and if you accept they make good on their end of the deal and nothing more. And then you have to abide by your side of the deal or else.
I usually really hate corporate metaphors, because they are usually written by people who are lazy both intellectually and physically. But this one strikes the perfect tone. It's neither heavy handed or unrealistic.
