Man Finally Gets Fired After Using A Bag Of Potato Chips To Skip Work For Years

I don’t know about you but I love sleep.

Going to bed and sleeping really is the best part of my day because I get to be all wrapped up and cozy in bed. There’s nothing better than that in all honesty.

When you’re asleep you are warm, happy, and dreaming, and let’s be honest. Dreams are the best, especially when you’re dreaming about Ryan Gosling knocking on your door.

What I really hate is having to get out of bed, especially when it’s freezing cold outside and your bed is nice and warm.

It’s almost like being torn apart from your long lost love.

Just the thought of it is bringing a tear to my eye!

Hearing the sound of your alarm ringing when your asleep is the worst thing ever.

Your hopes, and literally your dreams, are snatched away in a flash and you reminded that there’s a world outside your bed which you have to interact with.

One of the reasons most of us have to get up in the morning is because we have to go to work.

We’ll stay in bed, trying not to go back to sleep while debating whether calling in sick and head back to bed is a good enough idea, or even try to think of ways to become super rich so we can stay in our lovely warm bed all day.

I know I would do that if I could!

But what if you had found a way of technically being in work while being able to stay in bed? Would you take it?

I know I would if I could, in fact, I think most of us would!

Well, it should come as no surprise that that’s exactly what a man from Australia did when he got the chance to skip work for a few years!

But how did he manage that?

He had a helping hand from a packet of crisps!

Most places of work have heard a wide range of excuses when it comes to not turning up to work.

‘I’m ill’, ‘I know it’s summer but my house has flooded’ or even ‘the monster under my bed is holding me hostage’.

Excuses can become boring and pointless when you’ve used them a bit too much, and employers tend to be less understanding about the whole thing when you overuse an excuse.

That’s why so many creative minds have come up with a number of ways to get out of work.

Recently, an Australian electrician has been fired from his job after it was discovered that he had been using a potato chip bag to help him skip work.

He managed to get away with this for two whole years until it was finally discovered that he had been tracking his employers the entire time he was working for them. 

His clever idea allowed him to successfully play golf nearly 140 times while he was supposed to be on the clock working.

Tom Colella, 60, had been employed by the same company for 20 years, and he has finally been stopped after the company he works for received an anonymous tip proving that he was off playing golf instead of working.
