'Pregnant' man fined in SA court

A South African man has been fined $140 for taking a week off work, telling his employers he was pregnant.

A real genius here...

His employers became suspicious and investigated the matter.

Who would have thought?
You really have to wonder what some people are using for brains.

There may be some scientific research leading to that, but I don't think it's happened *quite* yet.

I use a bunch of stories to take sick leave but I have never tried that one.

Now, why would an employer be suspicious of a male employee claiming to be pregnant? Makes perfect sense, to me! ;o)

I had a boss that was so stupid he thought menopause was a fancy name for a coffe break.
