A total of 800,000 RMB in cash was put into two boxes and placed up for grabs at a Wenzhou company’s annual gathering this past week.
The catch? Each high performing employee in 2014 had the chance to grab as much cash as they could…with one hand, according to NetEase.
It’s reported that one rather large-handed worker grasped on to a whopping 20,000RMB during the event.
The annual gathering is held at the end of the year every year in a bid to recognize and reward hard working employees.
Some web users doubted that it was possible for one (human) hand to hold onto a wad of bills amounting to 20,000 RMB in cash as is was spread out, but noted that it would be pretty difficult for the average person to experiment. If the employee did indeed grab that hefty bulk of bills, we’re curious as to whether or not he (she?) hauled it home in a garbage bag, as goes the end-of-year bonus tradition.
