"Pregnant" Man Fined

Mon Jan 15, 2007 9:49 pm

This is classic..

A man who played hooky from work and the submitted a fake medical certificate from a gynaecologist has been fined ZAR1,000 (about USD140) in the Vereeniging Magistrate's Court. The man stole a medical certificate from the Medi-Clinic in the city when he visited the gynaecologist with his pregnant girlfriend. He then added his own details and submitted it after taking 7 days off work, apparently unaware that only women visit gynaecologists. His employer became suspicious and investigated the matter.  rotfl 
After Monday and Tuesday even the calendar says WTF...

He was illiterate, apparently, thus not realising the problem.

The story appeared in this week's Private Eye, in the Funny Old World column.

A quote by Einstein comes to mind... Only two things are infinite, the universe and human stupidity, and I'm not sure about the former.
Don't expect to see me around that much (if at all) -- the contact link should still work, though.
