Serious shirker

An Austrian man proved he is seriously devoted to remaining unfit to work recently. With a hearing that would likely find him able to return to work looming he decided to ensure his status would not change by cutting off his foot and throwing it into a furnace. He called an ambulance and his life was saved but the foot could not be due to the severity of the burns on it. It seems to me that a mental diagnosis would have been sufficient.

If thine foot offend thee, chop it off. Or something like that.

But, did it work?

If that labor department has anything on the ball they can still certify him able to work. After all you don't need feet to do data entry, or radio hosting, or any number of jobs where you simply do not need to stand. I work, and techincally I'm eligable for disablity. It does limit the number of jobs you can do, so if those jobs aren't available then you can't work even if other jobs are open. He should have given himself a home lombotomy, then he could have gone into management or politics.

Maybe the licence plate stamper can be worked sitting down.
