In the working world, it is safe to presume that management worldwide has just about heard it all when it comes to being excused from work. The creative minds of the working class come up with a plethora of ways to get out of their daily duties and responsibilities. For some, when working freedom is granted, they capitalize on the opportunity, and sometimes, in the most unusual of ways.
An electrician has been fired from his job after it was found that he had been cleverly using a potato chip bag that would help him skip work. Two whole years into his ingenious scheme, it had finally been discovered just what he had been up to the entire time.
This idea allowed him to successfully play golf nearly 140 times, while he was supposed to be on the clock, working. Employed by the same company for 20 years in Australia, Tom Colella, 60, had finally been stopped in his tracks. The business received an anonymous tip proving that he was off playing golf as opposed to fulfilling his working duties. His employers failed to notice for far too long.
Just like in other businesses, a digital assistant was provided that tracked his active assignments and completed work. Additionally, his location was also tracked through a GPS. What Colella did to deviate from and deceive his employers was astounding.
