Dreams -- every few nights, I seem to have one which is, at least loosely, about the job in which I worked from the early 1980s to the late 1990s. Job involved salaries and wages -- I'm next-door to innumerate, whereby such work would seem rather contra-indicated for someone like me; but calculators and adding-machines, allowed me to just about cope. I was miserably bad at said stuff.
Dreams about situations with that job, often involve my boss during the above time; who basically disliked me, and thought me mostly a "waste of space": but he was a very upright and moral character, and felt obliged to defend and support his staff when things went wrong -- "whose fault", irrelevant in his view. He "pulled me out of the fire" on a number of occasions. That was long ago -- we had no contact after he retired in the mid-90s, and it's quite likely that he's now dead. I have frequent dreams in which I'm back in this job of mine, and assorted -- often totally surreal -- things are going wrong: usually involving my old boss, who in the dreams sometimes assumes the role of an ogre and tyrant, sometimes of a suffering supporter of his idiot underling. Am always very glad to wake up from such dreams and realise that the stuff is not actually happening.
