What lengths would you go to, to avoid work?
What some people would do, to avoid work!
A man in Austria has sawed off his own foot and thrown it into an oven, just so he doesn’t have to go to work…! Perhaps, a bit extreme, would you not argue!
The man (who can’t be named for obvious reasons!) was suffering from unemployment and he wanted to ensure he was judged as being unfit to work prior a meeting he had with the Labour Office.
So how did he do the deed? Well, the man sawed his foot off above the ankle and then miraculously he hobbled (whilst bleeding!) and called himself an ambulance.
The emergency services, stated he had lost a lot of blood, but he was still conscious and they even managed to retrieve his foot from the oven but it was so badly burnt, that they couldn’t reattach it.
Unfortunately for the man, and despite his injuries, it’s unlikely he will be considered as unfit to work (and be eligible for disability pension), as his wound was self-inflicted.
He would only be eligible for the pension, if he was officially declared mentally ill.
