He Cut Off His Foot To Keep Jobless Benefits

I get that most people would rather have their time to themselves rather than work for a living, but who hates work more than  56-year old Hans Url of Austria?

With his unemployment benefits being threatened because he hadn’t found a job yet, Url cut off his foot  so he could qualify for permanent disability. Yes, he actually took an electric saw and cut off his own foot.

Then he threw the stray appendage in the fireplace in an attempt to hide the evidence.

He almost bled to death and was saved by an ambulance and  helicopter trip to the hospital. The bad news for Url is that it isn’t going to help him avoid working.

He is going to be assessed for jobs that will work for him after he is discharged from the hospital. Hard to believe what some people will do to get out of work, isn’t it?
