weeks’ notice and retires to a private island in the south Pacific.
Meanwhile, you get fired after failing another code review.
But that’s okay, because that all happened inside Thankless Programming Job Simulator 2013. As revenge, you uninstall the game, then write and execute a program that exhausts all available memory, all the while shouting through endlessly flowing tears:
I CONTROL YOU,
MADOKACOMPUTER! YOU CAN’T WIN!
