To Avoid Having to Go Back to Work, a Man Saws Off His Own Foot:
In Styria, Austria, a 56-year-old man . . . whose name wasn't released . . . was on unemployment. And he was in NO HURRY to stop the checks from rolling in by going back to work.
Yesterday, he had an appointment with the labor office . . . and he knew if he went, they'd see he was healthy and able to get a job. He did NOT want that.
So he came up with a perfectly rational and logical plan . . . he grabbed his electric saw and LOPPED OFF HIS OWN FOOT.
Then, for some reason, he threw his foot in the oven before he called for an ambulance.
Doctors weren't able to reattach his foot. But for now he's still in the hospital and doesn't have to go get a job, so . . . mission accomplished?
Need a Job? There Are A Lot of Opportunities In the Rapidly-Growing Field of . . . Meth Lab Cleanup:
If you need a job . . . and you're willing to occasionally breathe in a few toxic chemicals . . . check out the rapidly-growing world of METH LAB CLEANUP.
It takes some training . . . you generally need to take some classes and get some field experience . . . but with more and more meth labs being busted, private cleanup companies all over the country need more staff.
Once a meth lab has been found, the area is considered toxic until a thorough cleaning has been completed. Owners can't rent or sell property that housed a meth lab until it's been decontaminated by a cleanup company.
There's a big range in salary for meth lab cleanups, but most companies charge about $2 to $3 per square foot. As an employee, it's definitely possible to hit $35,000 to $45,000 in a year, depending on how much you work.
