Workplace Ethics: Getting Out Of Work The Hard Way!

What happened to faking a cough? How about telling your boss that your best friends uncle died in a tragic golf accident this morning? And what about projectile vomiting. That's a winner! In Pasco, Washington, Sheriff Deputies responded to a drive-by shooting. At first, the man claimed he was jogging when he was shot by someone in a black car. But, deputies soon found out that wasn't the truth, the whole truth and not even a remote part of the truth. It seems that today's winner in the game of life asked his friend to shoot him so he could get some time off work and avoid an upcoming drug test. How's that for creative?

Daniel Kuch, of Pasco, told police that his friend, Kurtis Johnson, shoot him to create the injury so that he would be able to be out of work long enough to get any drugs out of his system and get some "special attention" from the hottie a Billy's Beer Bong! His friend was arrested for investigation of reckless endangerment and Kuch was booked into the county jail and is expected to be charged with false reporting. Detectives declined to say where Kuch works, or whether he still has a job. It wasn't known if he had obtained a lawyer.

In all honesty, I don't think this is not a good way to get out of work. There are a lot easier ways to do it that getting shot. But hey, when you're making $7.50 an hour flipping burgers and you find out that you're being put on the french fry fryer tomorrow, maybe it's not such a bad idea. Of course, that's just my opinion, I could be wrong!
