However, such thoughts of bloodied demise haven't entered the minds of some 1,650 applicants, all vying for 700 chauffeur positions during the IMF- (that's International Monetary Fund, not Impossible Mission Force) World Bank meeting in Singapore.
Training began in the middle of August, with applicants taking the wheel of what's assumed to be a variant of the BMW 750iL or 760iL uber-sedan. The potential drivers seem to come from all walks of life, including one 49 year-old housewife, whose empty nest syndrome brought her to the tryouts.
Pay certainly isn't in the stratosphere, with the finalists being paid between $9.00 and $12.50 per hour, with shifts that normally last 12 to 16 hours per day. Still, we'll take it.
