Glory

You’re a tax preparer and just made someone’s day by getting them a hefty refund. You even made them crythey can afford the Winnebago of their retirement dreams because of you.

Or you are an auditor and you caught fraudthe CEO and CFO are soon to go to jail. You made them crythey will lose the Winnebago of their retirement dreams because of you.

You get praise and pats on the back, but you probably won’t get carried through the streets on anyone’s shoulders. If you wanted that trip, you'd have chosen another career or era in which to be born. Like, do they do street-shoulder-carrying any more anyway?
